      The photo is not so hot like 5 ke-ho. Probably collectors would give a lot of money. If you dig a lot there, you can find the remains of ours and their soldiers. Even in our region dozens are found every year. If you count how many were found after the battles and for so many years, and the remains are up to and more. There all the more there are sparsely populated islands.

        This is Type-97 Chi-Ha, a rivet-shaped case. His would be in Kubinka ...
        Thanks to the search engines, help our grandfathers rest in peace. The soldiers deserve it.

              Ke-Ho was only one, and he had a tower like Shinhoto Chi-Ha. And in the photo there is an ordinary Chi-Ha with a short 57mm gun.

          It will not work unless the Sakhalin memorial complex transfers them, so they are on its balance sheet, and if we take into account that they don’t have much to show there, they will not give them

      My father-in-law, heaven to him, took part in the war with the Japanese, only in Manchuria, told that the Japanese desperately resisted and the victory over them was not easy, so I bow to them and eternal memory and thanks to the search engines for their work.

        One of my grandfathers took part after Berlin. He always said that the Japanese were meaner and better than the Germans.

      Fortunately, this is the only battle in the war with Japan with this ratio of losses. Maybe not 2 to one, but ours died more on Shumsha .. Eternal memory ..

    Until the last fallen soldier is buried, the war is not over ... Judging by this article, as well as by what is happening with the remains of our soldiers in the forests near St. Petersburg (Sinyavino, Nevsky Piglet), that war will not end for a long time ...

      Actually, this expression is about the living, while there are people who fought against each other, the war is not over, because it’s almost impossible to forgive the death and murder of loved ones, and it’s so easy to kill the enemy ... That’s why the bickering continues in Ireland, so it’s not calm in Dagestan, therefore, in India, on the border with Pakistan, there are quite expressive changes of guards.

    "Do not forget the unknown soldiers"

    You tell me, my former peer,
    Composing songs about war
    Putting flowers to the obelisk
    You who are so close today.

    Why are you wondering me
    Call now unknown?
    Am I for my homeland
    Didn’t give your young life away?

    Why under fanfare and marches
    Forget about the memory of the fallen?
    Not found, not buried,
    Never taken into account by anyone?

    We are not where the obelisks stand.
    And not where there are beautiful speeches.
    And not where the church candles.
    We are in the ground and in tall grass

    Both in flowers and in swamp water,
    In golden wheat grain
    In the noise of the leaves, in the forest silence.

    Our blood stained the sunset.
    Remember us, my friend and brother.
    On days of victorious solemn dates
    Do not forget the unknown soldiers.

    Igor Leonidovich Chopp, a participant in the battles near the city of Grodno.

    Well, I don't understand how it was possible to "forget" the dead soldiers !? After all, it was not 1941, when they retreated in panic and everything got mixed up! Obviously, regular military personnel died from official units with all the ensuing consequences ..

      So I was visited by the same thoughts, it’s sad and insulting that even in 1945 there was no proper order in this matter ...
      You can find as many excuses for this as you like, but as the saying goes "who wants - is looking for a way, who does not want to look for a reason ..."
      Eternal memory to the fallen and better late than never.

    I myself was born on Sakhalin in the village of Matrosovo. All Japanese military equipment was brought there from the surroundings after the war. We all crawled out there and learned it in games.

    A blessed memory to all the soldiers who sacrificed their lives ... After all, everyone fought for their country: for some, there were Russian enemies, for us the same Japanese and Germans.
