    looks to me like they're posing for a photograph, or an awards ceremony, and being directed by the guy at center. Can you tell what's on that little tripod? looks like something connected to a cord...possibly a camera or microphone?
  2. mrmajestic1 mrmajestic1, 6 years ago
    It looks like WW11 and Japanese soldiers. May be China since your Dad was there.

    Agree-- WW2 era Japanese soldiers in some sort of ceremony.

    The flag is a version of the "rising sun". The man appears to be reading into the tripod mounted microphone.

    It sure is odd looking to me , Rising sun flag was from what year? if its a microphone must be ww11 or later right?

    A couple of things; I think the Japanese invasion of China started around 1931 and lasted right till the end of the war, 1945. and also I believe the flag is a Japanese battle flag.

    Were the japans our friends?
