Japanese Combat Boot Sole Saipan
This is the sole of a Japanese combat boot found on the surface after the departure of a Japanese repatriation team excavating the mass grave of Japanese soldiers killed in the last banzai charge at Saipan. Note the metal studs. Items such as this were likely exposed due to heavy rains after the excavation.
