Help needing to identify soldier name on Meiji case

Recommended Posts

Hi dear everyone,

Does anybody can help me to identify this case ?

By making comparisons to boxes already seen and looking at Richard's web site, it seems to me that this box is Meiji and concern the russian-japanese conflict... am I right ?

I need you help to translate kanji below the central cherry blossom  (3 small + 4 larger) concerning I suppose the soldier name, rank and medals ?

Any help you could afford me in that matter would be greatly appreciated.

Once again  one thousand thank you Nick for this answer.

I am very satisfied to know that the box and document comes from the same family. I would not want to make an excessive use of your kindness but I would like to know what means 3 kanji below the central cherry blossom ?

And for the document (I suppose it was a monetary award) what it concerns ? does it mentioned a medal and the amount of a pension ?

I hope not to be too painful for all these questions ..... 

Very friendly, very respectfully,

Patout

Hi Nick,

One thing to say : THANK

....regarding hours I spent to compare all the documents which I can find on the web and making comparison table of equivalence between former and recent writing of kanji...all that...all that... to have very weak, very thin and poor information to be exploited. 

So, really very friendly and respectfully

Patout
