PICKED UP THIS GROUP A FEW WEEKS AGO. I DIDNT PAY MUCH ATTENTION TO IT WHEN I BOUGHT IT. I THOUGHT THE SOO MEDAL WAS SOME KIND OF GAG MEDAL. THE NAVY GOOD CONDUCT MEDAL IS SIGNED AS IS THE SOO MEDAL+HIS DOG TAGS AND ABOUT 50 PICTURES OF THE CHINESE AND JAPANESE FIGHTING,TORTURE VICTIMS, DEAD IN THE STREETS ETC. I FIGURED THAT THESE ARE PICTURES THAT THE CHINESE OR SOMEONE HAD COPIES MADE UP. A FEW ARE PICTURES HE TOOK-MAYBE. STILL A NICE INTERESTING GROUP. AFTER GOGGLING SO CHOW MEDAL I THINK I MIGHT HAVE A PRETTY RARE GROUPING. HERE ARE SOME PICTURES,WHAT DO YOU GUYS THINK. THANKS PAUL
