General Itagaki Seishiro (1885-1948)

General Itagaki Seishiro is the bespectacled man shown in the stamp on the right. At the time of the Japanese surrender, he was the Commander-in-Chief of the Seventh Area Army in Singapore.

While the people of Singapore were jubilant that the war was finally over, there were many problems ahead: jobs, education, housing, etc. were all lacking.

  1. I have been browsing the web more than 4 hours today, and this is the best article I’ve come across. I’m a article fiend so I’ve actually seen a lot already.Personally I think, if all site owners and bloggers made as good content as youhave, the internet would bea lot more useful than ever before.
