This WW2 Japanese flag legit, or USN ship made

Post by Mark in Cleveland, Tn. » 26 Apr 2018 23:42

Guy on one of those FaceBook WW2 militaria groups, a cronic poster on this one group, just posted this, I told him IMO it was NOT a Japanese legit, but one made by USN or USA guys on board ship for other GI's to buy and impress their family and friends back home, I said these faded, running paint, wet ink types are garbage, as I have never seen a legit flags who's redball has run, even imirressed in water. I said IMO even the Kanji was weird, so do I owe him a apology? Also asked him why would the edges be raw, and not sewn as all were, Unfinished as this one ois

Here is flag that one of my ex-work mates brought into the workshop, it was about two years ago and he knew little about it other than his granddad brought it back from the far east after WW2;
