    Jay-Force occupation of Japan post WW2 AWMM
    Following Japan's surrender in 1945 Allied Forces, including New Zealanders, Australians, Canadians, and Indians, entered Japan as an occupying force, to restore the peace, clean debris from the atomic blast, help rebuild and direct Japan into a democratic society. Initially called BCOF (British Commonwealth Occupation Force), they became known as J Force. Some of the New Zealand troops were sent to Japan direct from Italy, and many went from New Zealand. The last New Zealand J Force troops returned home in 1948. AWMM
