I have in my possession three paintings on silk that are from WW2. Whilst I know some of the history, I do not fully understand the full history of Japanese Serviceman caring these paintings. I am fully conversant with the Japanese flag and the well wishes from family etc., and I understand the paintings, all of women may also be from a loved one.

They are beautiful paintings (I call them paintings as they are very colourful) although not sure what they are painted with, and would love to know a little more about the history behind serviceman caring these.

More than happy to post a photo if anyone wishes to see them.

Thanks in advance.

I shall do some research but the second one looks like it depicts them on a beach. Not some old form of hentai, lol.

I won't go into too much detail as these types of items may cause distress for others. The paintings are part of a collection from an Australian soldier in WW2. It included a signed Japanese flag. The artwork is very nice and yes there is a beach scene. They are very fragile with the silk showing signs of wear and fading. Small holes appearing and water stains here and there.
