53rd Medium Port Transportation Company
I have very little information on this unit, but it was on Okinawa in June 1945, and probably after Oct 1945. The photos from this unit are interesting in that 10 of them were color photos, very rare at that time. The photos were very faded and computer color restoration was used to bring out what little color there was. The color photos show Naha, Naha port, a Christian chapel, and a crashed Japanese aircraft. Also included are black and white photos showing Futenma shrine, Naminoue shrine, what appears to be camp damage from Typhoon Louise in October 1945, one of the bells from Shuri Castle, damaged building in Naha, and various camp photos.
