    Reading this, I'm wondering if there was not more cases of people from non asiatic apparence serving for the Japanese, or Japanese citizens serving to other the Axis countries.

    On the reverse of this, there was a Korean solider fighting for the Germans in Normandy in 1944.

    He was impressed into Japanese service, captured in 1939 by the Soviets, impressed into Soviet service, captured by the Germans, impressed into German service and then finally captured by the US.

    Looks like a captured P-40 they are posing on. Neat! Wish I could enlarge the picture to be sure though...
