About 10 years ago I read various books about the war experiences of American soldiers involved in fighting against the Japanese in the Pacific Theater. I recall reading that one method for unemployed women of Japanese origin (on Guam, Saipan and Okinawa) to earn some income was to take locally produced Japanese flags, get in a "sewing circle" and write Japanese-character names on them, and then passing them on to another Japanese gal to get different Japanese-character "handwritings" on them. These flags would then be sold as "war trophies" to unsuspecting, late-arriving, second-echelon American soldiers who were occupying the islands. Many of which may be appearing on eBay nowdays.
