I posted this on USMF recently. This came from a group of souvenirs that was brought home by a US Soldier who served in the CBI.

It's a Japanese postcard, but it has writing that I believe are Chinese signatures. I would appreciate any help in translating or identifying those who signed the card.

My guess is that most have already been translated. Looks like you have a name in Chinese characters then the alphabetic representation of the name next to it. 

 

The only non-name that I see it the "Victory for the Allies" phrase  (in red box) 同盟勝利

Thanks Eric for your response. That makes a lot of sense. Now it would be nice to know why and how an enlisted Airman has these autographs.
