Bob Alford adds:
"A data plate we have from Betty 4853, from the Kai Islands. There is no date of manufacture on it but it was produced at the Nagoya factory. The inspection mark is Na - Ko. This came from a bloke who served with the RAAF in the Tanimbar, Kai and Aru Islands area, but he is sure it came from an aircraft in Kai Islands."
