Just decided to randomly find out about some mysteries from WW1 & WW2 and the Korean War. Here is a few.

Royal Norfolk Regiment Vanishes

In 1915, a variety of Allied forces were stationed at Gallipoli in Turkey during World War I. A coalition made up of British, New Zealand and Australian forces were preparing for an attack on the Turks. Most of them made it through, but for the members of the Royal Norfolk Regiment, it would be their last days on Earth, without a single shot even being fired. The company was ordered to take a hillside near Suvla Bay that was enveloped in a fog. All 266 men charged up the hill and simply disappeared, with hundreds of other men as
witnesses. Their bodies were never found


UFOs Over Korea

During the spring of 1951, PFC Francis Wall had a very strange experience on the battlefield in Korea. One April evening in the region known as the Iron Triangle near Chorwon, Wall and his division sighted a strange, metallic object floating over a hillside. It looked like no craft either army had ever fielded, and seemed immune to artillery fire. However, rifle bullets seemed to damage it, and it before flying away, it bathed the American troops with a strange ray that made them feel like their bodies were on fire.
Everybody shot by the ray suffered bizarre physical effects -- including elevated white-blood-cell counts -- and had to be evacuated from the battlefield. Many still have symptoms to this day.


The Disappearance of Flight 19

This strange story actually takes place just a few months after the end of hostilities during World War II, but it’s bizarre enough (and involves military personnel and hardware) . In December of 1945, Lieutenant Charles Taylor led a flight of five Navy planes on a training exercise out of Fort Lauderdale. Radio broadcasts from Taylor reveal that none of their compasses were working and the entire fleet got lost, never to be seen again. The planes were never recovered and their disappearance helped
bolster the legend of the Bermuda Triangle.




If I find any more I will post them

Most of them made it through, but for the members of the Royal Norfolk Regiment, it would be their last days on Earth, without a single shot even being fired.

Not actually true - they were found after the war:

The bodies of the " Vanished" 5th. Battalion were not discovered until 1919 when The Commonwealth War Graves Commission were working in Turkey to consolidate and record graves dating from the 1915 Dardanelles campaign. On September 23, 1919 the officer commanding the Graves Registration Unit in Gallipoli wrote in a report:

    "We have found the 5th Norfolks - there were 180 (bodies) in all; 122 Norfolk and a few Hants and Suffolks with 2/4th Cheshires. We could only identify two - Privates Barnaby and Cotter. They were scattered over an area of about one square mile, at a distance of at least 800 yards behind the Turkish front line. Many of them had evidently been killed in a farm, as a local Turk, who owns the place, told us that when he came back he found the farm covered with the decomposing bodies of British soldiers which he threw into a small ravine. The whole thing quite bears out the original theory that they did not go very far on, but got mopped up one by one, all except the ones who got into the farm (house)."

Of the 267 soldiers of "The Vanished Battalion" who 'disappeared' on 12 August 1915, the bodies of only 180 were subsequently found. Together with their 'lost' colleagues, they are commemorated (including Edward and Victor Cubitt and their cousin Randall Burroughes) on Panels 42 to 44 of the Helles War Memorial, Turkey.
