  1. Maybe a Japanese-American Marine forged this flag and traded it for a pack of smokes from the vet I got the rest of the grouping with? Lol crazy to think that there is a ton of “Seabee” flags going around and some people think they are probably from a real Japanese soldier. Well I guess the flag would be, but the writing not so much. Thanks for the information guys!
  2. I posted this flag on a forum. You and Eric are absolutely correct. You can check it out here https://jref.com/threads/flag-and-wax-seal-translation.159352/#post-924595

Lesson learned for me that’s for sure!

You can tell from the envelopes he states he killed the officer in Saipan in June 1944. I hope you guys enjoy! If anyone can somehow gather any information on Henry Woods (I tried looking
