Re: 6th division, guada canal in 1944 - Flag with signatures

My Dad also was in the 15th Marine regt. 3rd bn.. I have a photo of at least ten men standing and sitting around a Japanese flag. I don't know who they are but it is fascinating to look at. My Dad is sitting in the middle.

Re: 6th division, guadalcanal in 1944 - Flag with signatures

Just wanted to update everyone that I am hoping to use a different camera tomorrow to take pictures of the flag. My camera ended up taking too detailed of pictures to upload to email to send out as an attachment. Hopefully in the next few days I will be able to send these out. I was also told by my father-in-law that he has numerous pictures that his gpa had taken during his time in WWII with the 6th. I am hoping to see these in the next few weeks and I will definitely be watching for the names everyone has sent me! Hopefully some of them will match up. Thanks to everyone for your help!

Re: 6th division, guada canal in 1944 - Flag with signatures

According to my Grandfather's records he was at Guadalcanal in November 1944. He actually disembarked from the SS Cape Clear on Sept. 14 1944 and was still there in November. I would love to see a picture of the flag. My Grandfather's name was Lt. Robert Samuel Troxler, known as R.S. Troxler. Thanks
