His Own -- Approximately 2,300 Americans died and were buried at Camp O'Donnell during the first six weeks of internment.  Steele depicts a soldier forced to dig his own grave.  Perhaps he tried to hit a Japanese guard or he possessed Japanese currency.   He dug the grave and was buried in it.   (Detail of Image)
