Dear VJK,

Thank You very much,

We have in Poland a fraze: "Nadzieja jest matką głupich". You can translate it as: "Hope is a mother of stupid [people]". I guess You can not give it up at any time.
Remember about me when You maybe will find photos of the rest of officers from my list. Just 4 left.

Regards,
Marek

From Eddy Bauer's World War 2,1973.

This Admiral appears relatively unknown as well--Rear-Admiral Chudo Keigye(on right) at the surrender ceremony at Rangoon 1945.Chudo commanded IJN units in Burma.

On the left is General Namata Takazo.
