I was at Camp gifu with ANGLICO from Aug. 1953 through April 1954 when I was discharged.
I sure remember the village of Nakanoya and about every bar in the town.
I was a Naval gun fire spotter.
At 72 years old I sure don't remember many names, perhaps you can jog my memory

I guess I am 2 years late in my reply. I was in the FO for the Mortar Platoon of F-2-9. I remember landing at Nagoya and going by train to Gifu. We were later transfered to another base outside Koyto, but I can't remember the name. I ended up in 2nd Div. ANGLICO as a Naval Gunfire spotter and did a Med cruise with them.

I guess I am 4 years late in my reply. I was in the FO for the Mortar Platoon of F-2-9. I remember landing at Nagoya and going by train to Gifu. We were later transfered to another base outside Koyto, but I can't remember the name. That would have been after you were discharged. I guess I replaced you since when I got back to the States, I ended up in 2nd Div. ANGLICO as a Naval Gunfire spotter and did a Med cruise with them.

When you were coming the other way was the bar called the Last Chance?

You are right, it was the Last Chance Bar. I arrived there in the fall of 1954. My buddy, "Beau', from Camp Pendelton said we should wait until we find a nice bar before we stop for a drink...he had been in Japan before. We made it as far as the Last Chance Bar, the first bar outside of the main gate. I was with 3rd Mar Div, H&S Company, Radio Communications. What was the name of the town?

The name of the town was Nakanoya as I remember it. I was there from Aug. 53 to Mar of 54 with 3 weeks out for exercises at Camp fuji. I was in Anglico and stationed at gifu. And yes it was the first bar off the base and was located next to public bath house.

I spent a year and a half there. Property Sgt of 3rd Med Bn. I never heard the town called anything but Naka-cho. My main hangout was the Sparrow bar about three blocks down on the left after you got on to the only paved street. If you had Cinderella liberty you had to cut through the rice paddies in the dark to get back to the base from the back, which made it kind of slippery in the spring.

To any of you old 3rdMarDiv Camp Gifu Marines out there, I have transferred about 100 pictures onto a CD that I am willing to send to anyone interested. They are about half from the base and the rest taken of various places in Naka Cho. I was in Hq Co, Msg Center Plt and arrived early in 1954 and left early 1955. I do have a shot of the Main Gate taken from the base side and the "First Chance Bar" is in the background. I have ticked the box on the bottom of this page which says, "send responses to my email address. Semper Fi---

Gifu CD

No score for this post
April 8 2005, 1:17 AM 

Dick,
I served at Camp Gifu and McGill from Apr 55 to June 56. Was in the 3rd Service Bn as a supply clerk. I have many fond memories of Gifu. One in particular was the trail up the mountain behind H&S Co, 3d Serv Bn. From the top you could see a river in the valley below, it was a great sight. Naturally I did not take any pictures of it. As does everyone I remember Naka Cho and the Bar First/Last Chance. I also remember stopping at the Aid station coming back from liberty and taking my almost obligatory pennicilin tablet. Also fond memories of the Service Club. I would like to go back to the Gifu area and see if I could find the base. I am sure it would be difficult to do.

I would like one of the CDs mentioned in your mail. Please let me know the cost and I will put a check in the mail at your convience.

CD of photos of Camp Gifu & Nakacho

No score for this post

Dick,

I just read your post about the 100 photos on a CD you are willing to share. If you read my posts you know I was there at the same time as you, 1954-55, then moved to Camp McGill, then to Marine Barracks in Yokosuka.

I remember the 'Over-The-Bridge' bar in Nakacho, and the 'Last Chance' Bar. It would be great to be able to see some of the old places we used to hang out. For some reason I did not take any photos while I was there.

I would be happy to reinburse you for your expenses.

Semper Fi!

Dick,

I had not heard back from you regarding my request for a copy of the CD mentioned in one the posted messages on the Sayonada Marines website. I am not sure if you are being copied on this message...or if it is just being posted on the website...and you have not seen it yet?

Hope to hear from you!

Best,
Ron Bowren

I have had a couple of requests for the CD from Camp Gifu and NakaCho that were not forwarded to me - I found them only by checking this site. If you click on my name at the top of the message it will open an Outlook Express with my regular e-mail address. Then I will be sure to get it.
Semper Fi and Sayonara for now!

My uncle was Pfc. Arthur Teachout, and was stationed in Gifu as a recon photographer from (roughly) 1951-1953. I have his scrapbooks from this time, and as well as some fantastic aerial photos of the camps, he took photos of the kids from the Catholic orphanage close by, during the Christmas and Easter seasons when the kids would have #1 ichibon Papa-sans for the day! My uncle also has quite a collection of ladies' photos - hostesses, nightclub singers, geisha - he did have the reputation as a ladies' man! Anyone here remember Artie Teachout? If so, I would really like to hear from you. We lost him in 1999, but he was a Marine to the end, and I'd like to share some of his photos with the guys he served with.
Semper fi, and, from a grateful nation, thank you all.

I posted here before with an offer to burn a CD with pictures of Camp Gifu and Nakacho but I have had an e-mail change so I need to update that information. The e-mail mentioned in this message is correct. Thanks to some other Marines who have shared pictures with me there are now about 150 on the CD. I send it gratis to anyone looking to revive some old memories.

I guess I am 4 years late in my reply. I was in the FO for the Mortar Platoon. I remember landing at Nagoya and going by train to Gifu. We were later transfered to another base outside Koyto, but I can't remember the name. I remember the train station was Sugumoto, but I think the base had another name.
