I have some original photos of a Japanese surrender on the wall, taken by my father in law. It is actually on a Royal Navy ship. In fact while the surrender in Tokyo Bay was the main one, many other ceremonies occurred in various theatres. My father in law served on an Aircraft carrier in the pacific, (yes despite hollywoods best efforts to paint us out completely we were there). He was actually sunk twice, once in the pacific the other time in the atlantic.
