Pearl Harbour   3 comments

When in Honolulu there is one place everyone has to visit, the history, the commitment and sacrifices people have gone through to make this place what it is today is amazing, and you should take time out of your day to visit Murphy’s bar.

However, before we did that we spent the day at Pearl Harbour, I’m pretty sure all of you know what happened on the morning of December 7th 1941 so i’m not going to go into details.

For those of you that haven’t been, it’s busy but also very well organised, very sobering and a great deal of dignity shown by everyone there, both visitors and staff.

Onboard the mighty Mo (USS MissouriThe surrender of the Japanese on the deck of the Missouri brought the Second World War to an end and remains one of the most impressive highlights in her illustrious, 50-year career, spanning three wars, and three generations of American fighting men and women.

For me the last part of our visit was the most poignant and I took a couple of photos to show what I mean. The photo below doesn’t look like much, but what it shows is the saddle, the dip in the range of mountains, this is the point the Japanese fighter pilots flew through, keeping low and avoiding detection.

This one really sent a shiver up my spine, these are the hanger doors, and the holes, yeah bullet holes.
