Red Cranes @ Kamikaze Cave ~ by Jade Richards-Butler ~ More WW II memorial cranes by this artist.

Jade writes on Instagram:
"Red Cranes HK Red Cranes is an art project which entails making 1000 paper cranes and leaving them at various World War II sites around Hong Kong.

I'm currently working on an art project which involves myself making 1,000 paper cranes and taking to various WW II sites around Hong Kong. I am a Lamma resident.

Location Two: Kamikaze Grottos, Lamma Island. This cave situated on the trail to Sok Kwu Wan, Lamma Island was used to conceal speedboats for Japanese soldiers. The boats were to be packed with explosives and planned to be used in suicide missions in the case of an enemy attack.

Each crane is folded by me, and then hand painted with resin, strung and beaded. Each string holds 40 cranes."

Just an urban myth. There were never any kamikaze boats there, or anywhere in Hong Kong.
I spent some time looking into this a while ago and there isn't a scrap of proof.

The cave might have been used to store ammunition, or fuel, or tins of sardines. No one can say; it's just an empty cave, there are no relics.

Japan had already surrendered weeks before the Royal Navy returned to Hong Kong.

I think the name came first and the stories were made up to match, long after the war.

FINALLY, the paywall has been removed from SCMP.COM. One of the last holdouts against free news and information to the public has been forced to give up their most obnoxious and very expensive paywall when Alibaba bought them recently.

So our occasional links to their very rare Lamma-related stories won't be greeted with a NO FREE VIEWS, SUBSCRIBE FIRST! pop-up ad anymore. Welcome to the online world of (almost) free information where you need to make your income from other sources, not subscribers, similar to free, terrestrial TV and almost all other commercial, online media.

Magnus Norberg Drumathon - by Harry Harrison - More works by this artist

This is such a creative poster for a free event, it's made Artwork of the Week!
Talking to Magnus at DickStock, where he was the drummer in probably half the bands performing, it's about time he gets the spotlight for his many many live performances on Lamma and beyond, always in the background, till now!
