  1. Hi "Mr Run" & "Lucia" Sorry, these parts are not for sale.. .good luck in your research Patout
  2. Hello "1812overture" thank you for all this informations you were able to translate a part and I thank you very much for that.... it’s a start of track. (NB : I understood what you meant about veterans) It is true that Nick is always ready to help the collectors in their research but I think that he is realy too much solicited. May he bring more information in the coming days Thanks Patout
  3. Hello "922F" thank you for all this additional information and for the links to the photos Patout
  4. Hello Nick Once again thank you for this valuable help.... you are really unavoidable. I am glad to learn that the medal bar "could be !!" original Thanks Patout
  5. I bought this little batch of diplomas that seem to belong to the same soldier, and I’d like to know his name and rank. It was decorated with the order of the sacred treasure of 4th class and the order of the rising sun (5th class?) He was also decorated with the Russo Japanese War Medal of 1904/1905, the Hiro Hito Coronation Medal and the Japan 2600 Years Medal With this diploma was the bar of medals. I am not sure that the bar is vintage because the ribbons look "very fresh" and not faded.... I would like to have Nick’s opinion on this medal bar, it seems to me that it is a reconstruction ?

  6. Thanks "1812 overture" for this photo with a japanese officer with the black star of Benin and thank you Peter for your comment I liked Nick's insightful comment about the non-dilution, but what I don't understand is the choice specifically of this colonial order ? Why not choose the order of the dragon (Annam), order of the star of Anjouan (Comores), Ouissam Alaouite (Morocco), royal order of Cambodia, Nichan Iftikar (Tunisia) ?... It only seems that the order of the dragon would be more appropriate, the drawing, graphics and design of this medal being more in the japanese style. But, may be giving a French colonial medal from the Asian zone (Annam-Vietnam) or royal order (Cambodia) would have been perceived as a provocation by japanese ? Patout
  7. Good morning everyone, I would like to know what these three sakazuki commemorate ? I need someone to help me translate the text. I would also like to know the name of the soldier for foot of the third cup. Thank you for your help, Regards Patout
  8. Hello to you dear collector friends, I wanted to show you this picture of Lieutenant Colonel Akutsu, what seems very strange to me is that he is titular (chevalier) of the French colonial order of the Benin Black Star. Has anyone ever seen a Japanese officer decorated with this order and does anyone have an explanation ? ! cordially, Patout
  9. thank you it’s always a plus to have the photographer’s name Regards
  10. Hi Nick, Thank you for this quick and interesting answer, so it is a way to reward someone without giving the legion of honor. In the same order of mind, in France a "préfet" who takes office for the first time the government gives him the "mérite agricole" so that he has a medal to show on his uniform in the receptions. Best, Patout

  12. Hi Nick, Thank you, very interesting... I look at all this... cordialy Patout
  13. Hello dear expert friends, I often see on sale on e.bay these beautiful sets of navy (bicorne + epaulettes) in steel box or leather box... For my personal culture, I would like to know the difference between these two sets seen on e.bay. The two bicornes look identical but the epaulettes present a soft difference. A pair of epaulettes has a red Paulwonia flower in addition (photo 1 & 2) . Does this correspond to a higher rank or at a different time? and what is the navy rank corresponding to these two sets ? books on combat uniforms are very numerous, however books about the parade uniforms of the Japanese Navy are very hard to find .. do you know one? Thanks for your help Patout
  14. Hi Nick, Thank you again for this very helpful information It's perfect, Regards Patout
  15. Hi dear passionate gentlemen and experts I found these three documents of the Meiji era together with a small batch of medals but I do not know if they belonged to the same person and what do they correspond : military promotion, medal presentation, pension...? Again...I need your precious help and assistance. Patout
