How did the Yosegaki Hinomaru get to America?

How did the Yosegaki Hinomaru get to America? (1)

After the fighting was over the search for battlefield souvenirs began.  To everyone's surprise, beneath the clothing of practically every Japanses soldier, they found flags, carefully folded in a pocket. 

It was an ideal souvenir, easy to carry and extremely popular with friends back home.

As a result, thousands and thousands of these Yosegaki Hinomaru were removed from the battlefield and carried back home to America with the returning soldiers.
