That would be Hirohito, but it may be when he was a Crown Prince as opposed to Emperor.

Ah, I take it back, I got my Emperors mixed up. :oops:

That photo was of P'U Yi, the last Emperor of China.

Hirohitos Twin Brother, :D :D :D

Pu Yi is correct, the last of the Chinese Emperors.

Sorry Nordwest, I got the dreaded "critical error" message for a couple of hours.

Comrade Commissar!

That have to be Chiang Kai-shek's nationalist China. They also had some Panzer I's to fight your comrade brothers...

Only, my dear Comrade Commissar, if the producers for "You only live twice" bought their Gyrocopter in an old WWII Prop store in Vienna.... (Yes, it's some kind of clue :wink: )
