War pics

A break from the ordinary. Here are some World War II pictures that I have found at my grandparent's house. I believe that these are originals and thus have never been published before:

Surrendered samurai swords at war's end.

Japanese mini subs, Yokosuka Naval Base. Keep in mind that without the nuclear bomb attacks that these subs would have been used in suicide attacks against an American invasion.

Machine gun from a Japanese kamikaze plane, USS Missouri

Grandpa with captured flag, winter 1944-45
