The name of the beach, was Chigasaki Beach, one of the beaches that were considered for the invasion of Japan. I would of been right in the middle of it, if the war had gone much further.
Thanks Mr Mouse and Tom.
WWII is behind us, thankfully. It was a terrible time for the world- especially the combatants and their countrymen.
Re the possibility of your being involved with a land invasion of Japan:
The dropping of atomic bombs was a horrible thing, indeed.
But if the Allied Forces had been required to invade Japan to end the war, it would have been an endless battle with every Japanese man, woman and child. I can't imagine anything worse for everybody.
Tom, you mentioned Chigasaki Beach in Kamakura.
Here's a photo I took there in the late 1960s... and posted a couple days ago.
