    A similar debate comes up every other year about the flag of the 28th Virginia Infantry that was captured at *****sburg. The Flag is in Minnesota and Virginia wants it back. However, given how that flag was attained, its probably right where it belongs.

    That wouldn't happen due to political reasons, but of course there are enough museums, which would take flags and items for exhibitions etc.

    You still can offer this flag to the japanese embassy. It may have been property of the Imperial Japanese Army.

    Like Hell I would. If it held meaning to an individual then that's one thing, otherwise it has meaning to me because of the sacrifice of my family.

    Oh good then. Let it be duly noted by the Mods that I Toddy1 have officially declared war on quinsen and I am en route to take possession of his house forthwith.

    Whoever is with me we will share the spoils of war, hopefully he has good German beer in the fridge and a beer wench or two. Please god let him not be a Bayern supporter. I don't think I could even get money for any of that memorabilia on eBay

    Should be a forgone conclusion because as quninsen himself says

    Yeah but you're not a proper nation yet, despite where you lay your kilt down and what you declare.
