Identification needed please

Recommended Posts

Hi, first time posting in japan section, although I have a strong Japanese collection and am now looking to grow it.

Picked up this badge the other day and having checked all my usual references I am struggling to identify it. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance

Lawrence,

It is the last badge on this page I have copied below.  The page is from Dia Nippon Military Antiques in Japan.

Regards,

Gordon

Civil Air Defense badge with an excellent design.
Inscribed 'Showa 9 [1934] July, Kinki Air Defense Maneuvers, [??] Defense Unit.'
Excellent badge with a soldier standing atop a dragon, the latter probably a 
symbol of China. Various figures in the distance. The buildings to the north 
appear to be Russian. Perhaps the soldier is looking eagerly at Japan's new 
target. (Thanks to my friend in Russia who pointed that out to me.)

Enamel Manchukuo and Japanese flags.

Inscribed 'Commemorative, Showa 6/7 [1931/1932], Imperial Military 
Reservists Association [Yamata Village?] Branch, Shanghai & Manchuria

Thanks Gordon

I thoroughly checked Dai Nippon website, but unfortunately it is not that badge you have suggested, despite looking several times I have not been able to identify it yet.
