‘Officers’ – Calendar Illustration – January 1946

Calendar Illustration - January 1946

In March 1942 the Imperial Japanese Army ordered that all POW officer shoulder badges were to be removed and instead to place one star on left breast pocket indicating officer status.

The Lance Corporal appears be laughing at the Officer this. Both Officers are not impressed.
