I tried to find something about MacArthur signing a flag in Tokyo on Sept 8, 1945, and stumbled onto a very interesting posting by someone of the same name as the poster here. Of course this may be a complete coincidence but it is certainly odd.
The posting was a comment on a you-tube video regarding a different Japanese flag.
"I have a flag signed by macarthur and the press core singed in manilla 7-9-45 on his return and the day he spoke to the phillipine congress what think its worth britney"
So either two different people, both named Britney, each have Japanese flags signed by MacArthur, or one person named Britney has two Japanese flags signed by MacArthur.
What a coincidence!
