The Japanese Naval Paratrooper Specialty Patch Hoax

Article about: The Japanese Naval Paratrooper Specialty Patch Hoax This hoax was exposed more than 30 years ago in Japan, but news of the exposure of it being a fantasy piece never seems to have reached US

    Rather quote me as saying "History is the sum of facts rather than a speculative consensus of what sounds good. If you don't have facts, keep your imagination to yourself rather than invent convenient answers that sprout legs of their own to lead people down false paths."

    Agree & stick to non fictional writing when no answers are available

    Since with text there is a loss of tone ..and much can be misconstrued as sounding like something else...in the case of these forums..it would be best ..when something is misunderstood...

    1. Kindly ask a question to explain further
    2. Go back and carefully reread the text in previous posts

    This would give great support to the thread topic and everyone who contributes. its a matter of keeping balance so no misunderstandings would derail into a large disagreement.

    Great Thread Gentlemen

    Regards Larry
    I posted that comment (post #39) because the article that quoted Mr. Sessler's info was called into question. I know someone who has seen these interviews and can confirm that the men who were there had never seen or heard about this RR. So that part of Eric Queen's article was correct. The rest is up for debate. It was not directed at any one person. I will go there if I'm called on something though. Looking back at the posts there are a few (posts #17 and #23) that seem to swing both ways. Like someone who wants these to be true but at the same time doesn't want to be wrong. Maybe it's just me?

    Gents , it's very rare we come across back biting and antagonism in our forum and it saddens me a little to see that the atmosphere on this thread at the moment has dropped a few degrees from our happy norm . We are all mature enough to realise it ends in no good . I have a lot of respect for everyone posting in our forum and know the pride taken in their collections and know that sometimes there will be disagreements ! I ask that we keep to decent and respectful discussion/debate on our given subject matter that is Japanese Militaria . Many thanks for your understanding .

    We are the Pilgrims , master, we shall go
    Always a little further : it may be
    Beyond that last blue mountain barred with snow
    Across that angry or that glimmering sea...

    For my part in this I apologize. I am actually friends with Jareth. I'm just not gonna take anything off of him. I know he feels the same way. Please don't let it get you down. It's really not nearly as bad as it comes off in our posts I promise you. In the future I'll just send him a nasty text message or relentlessly prank call him at 2am lol!!
    Regards, Scott
