In November 2012, Tanya Baugus and her husband R.V. travelled back to the
National Museum of the Pacific War in Fredericksburg and sent photos of the bell in its display case. Tanya says she was extremely proud to see it on display. So were we and so was Ron Buninga and Tanya's father Verne will be delighted to see the photos.

(Above) the list of Pacific War memorabilia contained in the case.
