Hello everyone!

I just recently acquired a Japanese Yosegaki Hinomaru. I found this site with tons of helpful information but can't quite figure any of the flag out. It came from a USMC amphibious tractor gunner in the Pacific Theater.

If anyone could help me authenticate and decipher anything on the flag it would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks in advance!

Ouch - unfortunately fisherman, your first sentence should be "I recently acquired a fake yosegaki".
The phrase at the top is 武運長久 ("Good luck in battle"). The signature on the bottom right is Tojo Hideki. The red seal says "telephone".

That seal is hilarious!

How much did you pay for that horrible fraud?
