A JAPANESE DIARY - PRISONER OF WAR DILEMMA

Today we took a prisoner.  We quickly disarmed him and he was very disruptive, but we didn't understand anything he said.

As we were waiting for our commanding officer to catch up with us, one of our tankettes arrived.  He seemed not to be able to communicate to his driver very well.

The prisoner got very excited!  It seemed our tank got just a little too close.

I didn't know what he said, but we were sure it wasn't very nice.

At this point the first snicker started.  Soon we were all laughing and others began to show up to see what all the laughter was about.

More of us arrived and we thought it was just so funny we couldn't even hold our rifles. 
 
That was when the Marine platoon came.  Later I heard our prisoner got to go home and got a big medal for taking us all prisoner single-handedly without firing a shot and capturing a tank as well.
 
But I bet he walks with a limp now.  Hehehe...

This is a group shot of my Japanese forces that were used in the online photostory about Tarawa on Ransome Chua's Frontline website.

Now this is a picture of the rest of my Marines that were cut from the photo story for various reasons.  They REALLY weren't to happy!
