Ki-48 Photo
from the collection of Michael Thaler

Attached is a scan of an original photo, evidently a World War II GI bring-back, of some Kawasaki Ki48 "Lily" bombers and Japanese soldiers doing calisthenics, possibly in China. Also attached is the typed caption on the back of the photo. Talks about the soldiers doing calisthenics every Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday. I could probably translate the whole thing if I could sit down with it for about an hour, with my dictionary. According to the caption, the photo was taken 13 April 1941.
