Park Ranger:
How many days rations will you be taking with you?



LCpl. Robert Neill:
Ten.



Park Ranger:
Ten? This is perhaps not enough.



LCpl. Robert Neill:
Thank you. I know what to expect.



Park Ranger:
Have an expression in our country. Do not teach ducks to swim. I wish the British Army good luck.

Chairman of the Inquiry:
How did the Colonel seem?



LCpl. Richard Mayfield:
Didn't look well physically, sir, but he didn't seem right in his mind, either. My opinion, Colonel's judgement seemed to have been affected that day. Something seemed to happen to him the moment he stepped on the mountain.

LCpl. Robert Neill:
[begins as narration] On a faraway island at the top of a mountain, there once lived a mighty dragon guarding a fabulous pearl. One day as the dragon slept, a stranger crept up and stole his fire, casting it down into the gully below. When the dragon awoke, he was defenseless. Without his fire, he could do nothing to stop the stranger from taking the pearl and sailing away across the South China Sea.


[switches to mission briefing scene]



LCpl. Robert Neill:
And ever since the pearl was stolen, a curse is said to be put on all strangers who enter the gully.

LCpl. Kevin Cheung:
Sir, we should not enter this place. We should not disturb the spirits.



LCpl. Robert Neill:
Really, Kevin, this is all so much mumbo jumbo. Once we catch up the others, we'll be fine. They're waiting for us at the bottom now.



LCpl. Kevin Cheung:
We are afraid of this place. We should not go in there.



LCpl. Robert Neill:
The purpose of this expedition, Kevin, is to confront our fears and overcome them.

Sgt. Bob Mann:
We lost each other. We thought they'd gone on.



Chairman of the Inquiry:
Well, why would they do that if they had an injured man with them?



Sgt. Bob Mann:
We run out of bloody food. See, to my mind, we should have never set foot in there in the first place. The actual gully is cursed. It was trying to teach us a lesson. Right, if the local people won't go in there, there's got to be a damn good reason. We should have shown a bit more respect.
