PEARL HARBOR JAPANESE AIRCRAFT CRASH SITES: THE NI'IHAU ZERO (2): Part VI
by James Lansdale
The NISHIKAICHI/NI'IHAU Zero, Part 2: Other NI'IHAU Artifacts
In addition to the 7.7 mm cartridge souvenired by the radio operator of the KUKUI (WAGL-225), shown below, other items were taken from the NI'IHAU Zero and preserved.
There are at least eight artifacts which were taken from the NI'IHAU Zero in December 1941 as souvenires. One of these items, the tail-light housing from Zero [BII-120] was removed by Albert G. CHRISTIAN (deceased), 299th Infantry, which is shown here below.
As shown above, Al CHRISTIAN, after reading a newspaper article about this episode on NI'IHAU, also typed and placed on the port-side surface of the tail-light housing the following admonition:
All enemy parachutists and in-
vaders are hereby warned not
to shoot our Hawaiians more
than twice. The third time "makes
them mad" and we will not be
responsible for their actions.
