The Gun's Ghost.

A 12 inch mortar rests in peace its ghost haunts all who see it.

The husband of The Empress' sister poses on the mortar to give you size perspective. It is hard to believe that on such a beautiful and peaceful island such horror went on.

The bravery and determination of the men who defended the island is remarkable and should never be forgotten.
