    The shots list currently lists the location as "Japan?", however the location is actually Manila, in the Philippines.

    "General Yamashita" is Tomoyuki Yamashita.

    "Note - name Major Raynolds is found in the old record, probably one of the American officers in court." - yes, he's one of the 5 men seen at 00:13. The first four of the 5 men seen are, from left to right of picture, Brig. Gen. Morris. C. Handwerk, Maj. General Leo Donovan; Maj. Gen. Russell B. Reynolds, and Maj. Gen. James A. Lester.
