JSNW member, Andrew Clare, will talk about his quest to return a Japanese war flag to the family of a soldier who died during WWII.
With the assistance of photos, he will discuss how he came by the flag as a 19-year-old Royal Marine, how years later he managed to identify the soldier and trace the living relatives.

In Collaboration with JET Alumni Association and supported by the Great Britain Sasakawa Foundation.
