#9 is not a single person's name. The last two kanji are actually connected to #3, thus, #3 is supposed to be 為小林君征途, meaning For Mr. Kobayashi's expedition.Would you agree with these translations?
Good point Ajnthony ! I always thought mine was linen , but Google says it's probably cotton. I should have thought about silk on WWII flags since it was common in Japan. Thank you for teaching me something I should have known.Not so white in person and is your 1972 flag made of silk?
I'm afraid to say this, but that's a poorly-made obvious fake. The signatures and slogans were written by someone who actually didn't know kanji.
I'm not going to offend you, but actually it's impossible that those people wrote signatures as Japanese names instead of their own names as if pretending Japanese people in that situation. Korean people had/forced to use Japanese names, but they could write kanji since they were educated in Japanese style. I believe that's a fake to make money, as usual.

The woman sews "one thousand stitches" and sends it to a soldier.
Have you ever heard 創氏改名?I do not understand why you singled out Koreans unless you think Japan only colonized or occupied Korea during the Pacific War. Japan colonized or occupied Indonesia, Vietnam, the Philippines, Thailand, Taiwan, Manchuria, Inner Mongolia, Mariana, Caroline and Marshall islands, Burma, Malaysia, Macao, New Guinea.....and that is just a loose incomplete list of names both modern and dated.
So, you've never seen any real hinomaru yosegaki where a non-Japanese wrote Japanese names, and you're just talking about possibility after all, right? Hope the OP is satisfied with your hypothesis...I suggested a foreign, colonized woman may have made it, perhaps as a replacement for a lost or destroyed one. Not very likely but could be possible in a time as crazy as a world war.
I am a history teacher. I am always teaching my students to support claims with real evidence.
That's what I meant. Makes sense?
