The sign reads:

KILL THE BASTARDS! Down this road marched one of the regiments of the United States Army - Knights Serving the Queen of Battles - Twenty of their wounded in litters were bayoneted, shot, and clubbed by the yellow bellies. KILL THE BASTARDS!

I have a copy of this photo and several others from my dad's collection. He died in 1980 and a few after I took them to the head of a local university library. He said he obviously couldn't say if they were the originals, but they were authentic. I don't know how my dad got these (especially the signing of the Japanese surrender on board the Missouri).

I have the same copy set of photos. They belonged to my grandfather who was in the Navy during WW2. I have several more also, some of mass graves and one of a headhunter holding a severed head.
