Facial recognition software: 1941 photo

I saw this cool photo at an exhibition in Japan in 2015. The photo is in 1941. These soldiers are posing in front of a castle in Japan. There were reflections on the glass so it was sort of hard to get a good shot of the photo. Back in 2015 I posted this photo on Facebook and Facebook automatically found the face of one of the men and said their facial recognition software thought it was one of my Japanese friends. My friend is about 79-80 now and his Facebook photo is from when he was about 73, but the software found enough commonalities to believe it was him.

I suppose facial recognition software might be able to look at the boy in the 1985 photo and the man in the 2012 photo and make a guess if they are the same person, but, just like with the old 1941 photo, it can clearly make mistakes.
