Query: Stolen Gold from Burma in World War II

No Comments

Can anyone help with this question? In 1944, the Australian paper The Argus published a short note about the theft of a gold disc 25′ in diameter from a temple in Burma by the Japanese Occupation army (“Japanese Steal Huge Gold Disc From Temple in Burma”, The Argus, February 10, 1944, page 12). FOK (name withheld on request), a German journalist is looking for information about the name of the temple and the current whereabouts of the gold disc.
