Default Snow camo helmets

Thanks, Guy. There are several soldiers named Yamada that were on Attu. Hard to narrow it down unless the unit description gives a clue. Iím unsure how to proceed since I donít read Japanese or have access to their archives.

We couldnít find anyone named Yamaga on the list so Iím glad the translation of the name is verified!

Hi Narvik1490,

I went back to ensure I read the name correctly. I'm 99.99% certain it is Yamada based on the angular form of the last katakana compared to . See below:
ヤマ Yamada
ヤマ Yamaga

So I'm going with Yamada. How many men named Yamada are in the ATTU memorial book?

Guy, Thanks! My source confirms your translation. He says there are over a dozen soldiers named Yamada in the memorial booklet.
