    I think those trees in the background were palm trees? Certainly characteristic of Taiwan. There's a Japanese tank and an American amphibious car. Very interesting set of photos.

    If you didn't already mean it, those helmets were not Wehrmacht issue. They were bought by the ROC before Japan pressured the Germans to stop selling them materiel in the mid 30s.

    Exactly. Those German helmets survived over 10 years of the anti-Japanese war and the civil war to end up in Taiwan. I find that unbelievable.

    Maybe they never saw combat. They're brand new like the uniforms.

    Interesting it's 1951 and he's got a rifle with a very long bayonet. I'm not sure how common the Garand was in the ROC at the time.
