World War II - Guadalcanal

My grandfather, Clarence Beck, served in the Navy during World War II. While he was stationed at Guadalcanal, he found a photo album. He brought the album back to the U.S. with the intention of one day trying to find the album's owner. My grandfather has since passed away and the album is now in my care.

This album is a treasure and there's a family out there who has no idea of its existence. It's time for this album to find its home. I will post as many photos as possible. Translations and assistance are very welcome.

There is not a single word written in a western alphabet, so I have not been able to translate the script. However, the parents of a friend of my son's were able to help with a few names. It's a start. The names Ichinose and Yoshitake are mentioned. I will add more information in my next post.
