Anybody have any detailed knowledge of the surrender ceremony on the USS Missouri?


Recommended Posts

Picked up a uniform to a man that would be XO of the Mighty Mo from 44 through the end of the war.  He participated in the ceremonies, and I am wondering if anyone might know of a site or book with detailed super-high res shots of the crowd, or have an idea where he may have been positioned when the surrender occurred, with the thought being maybe he was near the captain when it went down.  Many thanks!

Looking for the following:

452nd and 447th Bomb Group items

Anything 12th Armored- especially uniforms

155th Assault Helicopter Company, Camp Coryell, or Ban Me Thuot Vietnam items[/center]


WWII US Navy Uniforms from the Battle Off Samar: USS Johnston DD-557, USS Hoel DD-553, USS Samuel B. Roberts DE-413, USS Heermann DD-532, USS Dennis DE-405, USS John C. Butler DE-339, USS Raymond DE-341, USS Fanshaw Bay St. Lo, White Plains, Kalinin Bay, Kitkun Bay and Gambier Bay...

Drop me a PM, I have a friend who has a box load of surrender pictures his uncle had taken during the surrender. It has been a few years since I talked to him and that time he was talking to the Smithsonian, and history channel on how to get them out to the public. I will need time and make a few inquiries to find him. We at one time had a vision to open a museum in his empty second floor WW2 warehouse right on Main Street Barnesville, Ga.
