Nice photos.
It would be nice if there was a phrase or a sentence describing what is happening within the photo.
Unfortunately the photo source doesn't have captions of any kind. However, I'm planning on posting more JSDF photos from perhaps the MoD's other sites like Facebook, Instagram etc., where they do have some captions which I will include where available. :)

You're using the 'Photo of the Month' from JMDSF's official pages on MoD's website? Yep, those are great pictures but never captioned.

Exactly! In fact the rules for posting photos in this forum state;

5) Post captions with your photos so we know what we're viewing. Captions must include dates. Members may post general captions for several photos on the same subject.
