I just picked up this Japanese flag and I have seen many German Vet signed flags but never a Japanese one so I though it was kind of neat, I need help on the Kanji translation that runs down the right hand side of the flag, there are about 30 US G.I signatures on it and I did a quick search of some of the names and they do come back as WW2 Army soldiers, I have to dig deeper to find out what unit they belonged too and where they fought so I can trace the flag back to its origin, one of the addresses is very close to me so I may look into seeing if that person still lives there! The story goes this flag was captured and signed by them and then given to their officer in command as a gift. I have seen enough vet signed items to know that the signatures are original, thank you for any help you can provide with the Kanji translation! Hope you guys like it!!!!
