All Hands Magazine - Flags of the Free - October 1945
FRONT COVER: The flags of the United States, Great Britain and the Netherlands are waved by wildly cheering Allied prisoners of war from atop the stockade of Aomori internment camp near Yokohama, as U. S. Navy rescuers approach with food, clothing, medical supplies—and freedom! This is the Navy's Picture of the Month as selected by the Navy Photographic Institute.

INSIDE FRONT COVER : "It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us—that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion . . ."
INSIDE BACK COVER: From overhead the USS Saratoga looked like this as she steamed through San Francisco's Golden Gate last month with her flight deck lammed with cheering Navy veterans from the Pacific—pert of 3,800 homeward bound.
OUTSIDE BACK COVER: Union Jack flies at the bow of the USS Missouri at anchor in Tokyo Bay. In the background Fujiyama towers over other Fleet units.
