All documents, pictures, and World War II Japan Surrender Memorabilia including Admiral Halsey's 4 Star Flag are owned by my family.
Currently, this collection is undergoing an appraisal. Once the appraisal is complete, this collection will be brought to the USS Missouri to be displayed (hopefully before September 2, 2013).
The purpose of this site is to display my grandfather's World War II Japanese Surrender Memorabilia. The Japanese Surrender Ceremony aboard the USS Missouri on September 2, 1945 was one of the most pinnacle moments in World History. My grandfather, Frank Orban, was the flag man aboard the USS Missouri. Frank Orban is listed under the World War II memorial database.
Some of the memorabilia I have showcased includes Admiral Halsey's 4 Star Admiral Flag, which lead Admiral Halsey to the Surrender Ceremony when the Japanese signed the surrender documents, original copies of the Japanese Surrender Ceremony on Board the USS Missouri, original photos taken on board the USS Missouri, and other significant items linked to the Japanese Surrender Ceremony.
My family owns over a hundred original pictures and original documents pertaining to the Surrender of Japan. I will be posting the documents and pictures over time.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy the World War II Surrender items I have.
