Interesting and great photos your Royal Marine was I believe a gunner on an Landing Craft Guns (LCG) with a ramp at the fore end ..... not sure what their function was ..... to land guns?
The Japanese were surely captured and suitably identified by the paper on the arm.
I wonder if the site was Rabaul  where the Japanese surrendered?

Glad you enjoyed them Joe. I have no idea where or when they were taken. Dad said he served on LCGs and was a gunner.
