Is Yamashita wearing some kind of camouflage or is he just being rained on? He seems to be the only one affected.

Photo of the Aleuts of Attu,later interned in Japan.

http://www.hlswilliwaw.com/aleutians/Al ... s-wwii.htm

For a short time, the Japanese occupational forces maintained the services of the Aleut fishermen to supply them with food. As the Japanese forces became more entrenched on Attu, Mrs. Jones and the entire Aleut population of the little village of Chichagof was transported in the hold of a freighter to Hokkaido, Japan for internment.
