In a the 2-2-V-1 discussion thread, Hal Beck contacted Pacific Wrecks people (I earlier mis-spoke and said "the "Mavis" photographer" before Ric corrected me, below) and received confirmation that the photo was incorrectly included in the Mavis wreck photos.  This clears up a big part of the mystery.  This means we have no actual photos of Japanese aircraft parts that were marked AN-A-13.
Cheers,

Hear hear.  It did seem strange...

Is that what happened?  My understanding is that Hal contacted Justin Taylan of Pacific Wrecks and Justin replied that the wreckage had been misidentified as a Mavis and was really a B-24. Was Justin the photographer? I've known Justin for many years.  He is a skilled researcher, a courageous and ethical gentleman and his website is a treasure trove of information but he is not the photographer of most of the photos.
