    These are actually civilian flags, not army. Almost all homes would have had one of these during the war and they were put up in front of the house often crossed with the standard meatball national flag. They were put in front on national holidays and special occasions like sending a son off to war. They were simply seen as a variant of the national flag. Here's how they were used.

    Great photos Nick. Tells a story! Lots of young children, wives and elderly.....but very few young men or fathers. Probably already off to war.
    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated

    A fine war-era flag, in my eyes, and in perfect size for display. A very nice find, indeed!

    The crossed national flag/battle flag format shown in Nick's photos is also probably the most illustrated artwork pattern seen on Japanese Off-to-War Banners as well.
