I think Rob might have stated somewhere else but that tunnel looks distinctively Japanese, could have been an alternate entrance tunnel they built (as with many other British defence structures). Any details on the tunnel? Location? Did you peak inside?

If you start from Mok Tse Che, go across the river, turn right and walk for a few meters, you will notice a path on a "mud slope". Follow the path and eventually it will lead you to the entrance up to the hill. When you look inside from the entrance, you will see the ribbons.

If you start from Nam Pin Wai, once you go pass the public lavatory and walk up for about 50m, notice the path on your left hand side and there are ribbons next to the grave.


I will probably go there from PB110, hence, Mok Tse Che is likely to be my choice.

Is it to take the branch of the road towards the west, and then cross the last bridge at the upper stream, then turn right to look for the mud slope and the path further off?

The coordinates you gave me for this part indicated a field south of the bridge I just mentioned.

Went up the dirt track behind the village with new villas, followed a distinct path uphill, after passing the first grave, there seemed to be indistinct trail cutting directly towards PB111. However, this one led to a dead-end. So we re-trace back to the junction and went further up to a second grave.

Then descent on the other side only to find lots different colours of tags guiding us to PB111 and two small caves. We did not venture in for we're in a hurry ... we visited 7 PBs today, that's why.

PB 121 has a marker outside its entrance trench which makes identification easy. This concrete trench leads to a collapsed tunnel and the PB, which is the same shape as 122.
