1945 - Japanese surrender

This film is believed to have never been seen before, only shots of the surrender were known.

If you are a history buff you will enjoy this. General MacArthur's voice is a rarity in these old film clips.

Japanese Surrender- Amazing Footage Sept 2, 1945.

This is a 'must see' for the WWII history buff or anyone interested in history.

Interestingly the other signers to the document, from New
Zealand/Australia to Europe/Russia.

This is an actual film made of the surrender ceremony of the Japanese to McArthur in Tokyo Bay in September 1945.

Actual voice of the General. Never been shown to the general public before.

We always saw the "stills" but never the film itself.

Err...plenty of this was in The World at War series which I think was made in 1973.

Cheers, Neilster
