These regional offices were merged into an extra-ministerial office on 21 March 1946 under the title Institute for the Welfare of Repatriates (Hikiage engo in). In the meantime, the former Ministries of the Army and the Navy had become the Demobilisation Ministries Nos. 1 and 2, handling the demobilisation of all service personnel. These ministries were merged with the Institute for the Welfare of Repatriates in May 1948. The product of this merger was the Office for the Welfare of Repatriates (Hikiage engo cho¯), which handled both civilian and military repatriates.

First, though the years between 1945 and 1950 saw the bulk of Japanese soldiers and civilians overseas repatriated, the mechanics of repatriation put in place immediately after the defeat reveal a limited ability, both in administrative and ideological terms, to recognise the possible existence of stragglers and take steps to find and bring them home. By omission, then, it was the process of repatriation itself which created stragglers, and which demands examination for that reason. Second, the ambivalence shown towards demobilised and returning soldiers fostered during this period continued to affect attitudes to stragglers in the early 1950s.

Thus social organisations, wartime propaganda and the Army’s official ethos all contributed to a shared national world view and experience in Japan during the Second World War: the mobilisation of spiritual and mental resources was by no means limited to the military. The degree of conjunction, then, between the soldiers’ and the general population’s experience of the war illuminates and conditions the kind of reaction that the stragglers’ return brought forth. The straggler was not an ‘unknown quantity’ for those who had lived through the war, nor did he elicit much puzzlement, at least for the first decade or so after the defeat.
