    Thanks for sharing this piece of History with us.

  • My father-in-law took this shot when he was there in the occupational clean-up forces and when he died we inherited his photographic record of what he saw.

  • ok, I do have some more very moving images from back then, some from my father also now deceased, who went there with the British Army. My dad loved Japan (though not the devastation he saw immediately after the war) and ended up marrying a Japanese lady he met years later at the ANU.They had a happy 30 years together until they both passed away in 2004. My dad was a amateur phtographer who developed his own black and white pictures, so I will share some of their images. Thanks for the interest.
