1. Japanese Anti-Aircraft Gun Marker
Inscription.  This dual-purpose 25-mm anti-aircraft gun used high-explosive, armor-piercing ammunition and could fire 300 rounds per minute. At the time of the recapture, the island bristled with Japanese anti-aircraft and coastal defense guns.

After the war, military equipment was salvaged for scrap metal. Today, only a few guns remain intact.
