More Kwei Family Photos - Part 3

This concludes this series of Kwei family photographs.  As I said at the beginning, if you can identify any of those who appeared in these photos, please add a comment or send me an email.

These rare photographs document an important period in the relationship between the people of Taiwan and the United States, a time when we stood solidly together to defend against aggression in that part of the world.  Recording the history those times has always been the primary purpose of this blog and I want to again thank Scott and the Kwei family for contributing to this effort.

My previous comment could be wrong. Very likely these photos were taken during Struble's visit to Taiwan in July 1950 instead of Feb 1951. Please see the photo in the following website. I believe it's the same scene of the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th photos of this post, and the man behind Struble in the photo is General Kwei.

The two men on the jeep in the last photo are Struble(right) and CKS(left). Please see the five stars on the collar of the man in overcoat. CKS is the only 5-star Admiral of ROC.
