During D-day several people become trapped while hiding in a bunker, when heavy shelling collapses it. They have plenty of food and water so they decide to wait for rescuers. And so they wait year, after year, after year.
Any other sources? I find this hard to believe and seemingly a take on the Japanese not surrendering in the jungle routineFive Companions Dead German Soldier Buried Alive 6 Years, Lives
WARSAW —(U.P.) —A 32-year-old German soldier who said he had been buried alive for six years in a Nazi supply depot was given a good chance by hospital authorities today to regain his health and eyesight. _ . The six-foot German, who was not identified by authorities at Gdynia’s Akademia hospital, said he and five companions were trapped in an underground German army food and supply warehouse by retreating Nazi troops who dynamited the entrance early in 1945.).
The soldier and one other survivor of the entombment stumbled bearded, blinded and blubbering from the bunker about a month ago when Polish workers cleared wreckage from the entrance to the depot at Babie Doly, near Gydnia. The second survivor dropped dead of shock on emerging into the daylight. The other said two of his companions committed suicide a few months after they were entombed by German troops who did not know the soldiers were in the depot. The trapped men were believed to have been looting. Two others of the trapped soldiers died of unknown causes, the survivor said. Air entered the tomb through an air vent undamaged by the explosion. Water trickled through cracks and the men had plenty of food. But they lived in darkness after their supply of candles was exhausted two years ago. The trapped men had no tools with which to dig their way out of the concrete bunker, the survivor said. He said they washed in Rhine wine and encased their dead in huge flour sacks. The bodies were almost perfectly mummified.

Seems very unlikely but I'll keep digging.
I'm thinking bullshit tbh. Think about it, why this was not mentioned in any Soviet papers and the Brits didn't get hold of it?Several here:
And the events inspired a film:
Described as being inspired by a 'possibly true' story; however, it was reported by Time Magazine, which is respectable.

The Soviets would have had a field day with this.

St. Petersburg Times (no doubt there are sources in Russian).
A prime candidate for an expedition!Just been reading about the tunnels under Black Mountain in Queensland, Australia. The stuff of horror stories.
The Kuku Nyungkal people of the region have long shunned the mountain, calling it Kalkajaka, meaning “the place of the spear” and sometimes translated simply as “The Mountain of Death.” Aboriginal tales tell of the mountain as a haunted place, home to various evil spirits and demons lurking within, which are said to hunger for human souls, one of which is the spirit of a wicked medicine man called the Eater of Flesh. Stories tell of any unfortunate to approach the mountain being dragged to their deaths within its bowels by spectral hands, and shadowy ghosts are often allegedly seen here.
You may have disturbed a sleeping monster...There's a nice cavern not far from where I live, discovered by some curious spelunkers -

it's fun to see, but so wet in there that I always feared plummeting to my death, never to be found again.
A couple of years ago while I poking around in the rock garden, I discovered a small opening in the ground ("ground" meaning a big slab of rock) I decided to remove the accumulated silt and see how far down it went. It's just big enough for my arm, so I stuck my arm in nearly to the shoulder but couldn't find the bottom. Then I went in with a stick and nope, still no bottom. It's really narrow though, so there's no way to see anything. One day I plan to use some fishing line and a weight and see if I can measure the depth.
It would be neat if it were an opening into another cavern. At this point though, it's just a mysterious hole in the garden.

Thanks, Yithian ...Thank you - threads merged.
If it was near me I'd go. I went to the one in Kelvedon Hatch which is well worth a visit.Went to RAF Holmpton nuclear bunker near Hull today. It was fascinating and the staff were friendly, attentive and informative. Worth a visit if you're in the area.
