    WWII Japanese Family Flag ....

    Folks,

    Looks like it is a family flag during the WWI that belong to Mr. Kiyoshi Oda.
    Any translation to English is greatly appreciated. Larry brought this flag to the NorCal club meeting yesterday. He wants to return to the owner or family of the owner of this flag. I think this is a great place to start with.

    Here is the picture....

    Best,

    I think my dad has a flag like that from the Pacific theater. He was in the Marines and saw way more action than anyone should have to. He won't talk about it much.

    PS
    I just spoke with my dad, he is 87 and in poor health. He is not quite sure where the flag is, but if we can find it I would like to return it as well.

    Sorry I've been away for a while folks, haven't been in the greatest health lately.

    What we see across the top: 祈武運長久

    "Ki Bu Un Chou Kyuu" - Praying for the perpetual fortunes of war"

    The rest of what is written are names of what seem like family and friends.

    Surnames such as: Fukunaga, Ichiba, Ota, Oda, etc. etc.

    Hope that helps. Will look deeper when I'm feeling up to it.
