During the war, my father-in-law acquired a Japanese Flag that he would like to return to the soldier's family. He acquired it in 1944 on Leyte in the Phillipines. The soldier's name is, "Masayuki Sano." Other names include:
Matsuemon Saito, Kichigorou Saito
Kobei Morishita, Kosuke Morishita, Eiji Morishita
Jitatou Tanaka, Zenjirou Tanaka, Miho Tanaka
Shoichi Nakado, Shokichi Nakado
Any information would be appreciated. I am trying to find a geographical location for Masayuki Sano so that I can search for his family.
