Destroyer Crew with Japanese Flag from Ramree

Destroyer Crew with Japanese Flag from Ramree
Here we see eight men from the crew of a British destroyer with a Japanese flag that was captured by the Royal Garwhal Rifles on Ramree Island (Burma) during the Allied invasion at the start of 1945. This would have been the 1st Battalion of the regiment, which fought on the island. The destroyer was part of the Naval force that supported the fighting, and probably helped the Garwhal Rifles at some key point.
