Last Survivor First Iwo Jima Flag Raising - Signed With Date and Time
This was the first flag to be flown at the peak of the diabolical Mount Surabachi...There were forty members of the platoon that made it to the top....and scant days later, 36 of them were either killed or wounded. One of the survivors, Corporal Charles W Lindberg (dec) has signed this important WWII documentation. The later, more famous photo, was taken because the first flag could not be seen by all the Sailors and Marines who were still fighting....Like all WWII documents, this can only increase in value. Purchased from an American Memorabilia auction. MB50
