Marine Corps Air Station Iwakuni Commanding Officer Col. James C. Stewart, British consulate general of Osaka Consul General Simon Fisher, and Mukaishima Chuo Elementary School first grader Aoi Ode, lay bouquets of flowers April 15, 2013, at the memorial site for POWs who were captured or killed at the former Mukaishima POW Sub Camp No. 4. The part of Onomichi where the memorial stands was once known as Mukaishima, and it is here where more than 200 Allied service members toiled in shipyards carrying materials until the war’s end in 1945.
