JAPAN - OCTOBER 18:  Japanese boy scouts, dressed like soldiers and carrying Rising Sun flags, march to celebrate the 2,598th anniversary of the founding of the Japanese Empire, 18 March 1938. �Empire Day this year was pervaded by a rather more serious atmosphere than usual owing to the war with China, and emphasis was on the military traditions of Japan and the fact that she has never, in her long history, been �dishonoured� by an invasion.
