Vice Admiral Shin-Ichi Ichinose


The characters written under this photograph were translated as Vice-Admiral Shin-ichi Ichinose.

According to Wikipedia he led the 26th Special Base Force that was disbanded in late WWII. It was an Imperial Navy detachment located at Halmahera Island (Dutch West Indies).

Very little can be found online about the Vice Admiral and the 26th Special Base Force.
