  1. Hi Nick, Thank you for having answered to my request... and beyond !! !! with all these very useful complements about the hierarchy of the system of civil servants. Still another documentation to be carefully kept. Regards Patout
  2. Diplomat, consul, ambassador ? who is he? Hello everyone... Does anyone knows him or .........unknown ? Regards, Patout
  3. Hi Nick, Very big thank you for your help, and for your essential presence on this site. a single word : Respect ! very cordially Patout
  4. Hi Nick, I bought a small collection of sakazuki (about 30 pieces) and I look forward to hearing what event they commemorate. On the other hand, I don’t want to abuse your kindness and look like I’m exploiting the good will. Allow me to ask for more help for the translation of 3 more cups, and for the rest I would wait for next year... I promise it ! PS : Do you know a good English book to advise me on military sake cups ? Regards Patout
  5. Hi Nick, This is great .......I could not dream such a complete and fast answer !! cordially Patout
  6. hello everyone, I would like to know what these two cups commemorate, what event? end of military service?, return victorious? and especially what is the name written inside the foot of both cups ? in advance... thanks for your answer Regards Patout
  7. Thanks Nick for this valuable information, it is true that I also very often made this mistake to think that these boxes with kanjis on 2 vertical lines were only to be attributed to Meiji/Taisho. I would learn the lesson. Best, Patout
  8. Hi "1812 overture" Thank you for your contribution and for google translate Regards Patrick
  9. Hi Nick, Thanks a lot, for all this informations, and congratulations : the kanjis are golden and the two medals have the M of Osaka. The golden kite is in excellent condition as well as the box and is certainly of the Showa era...but for the rising sun, it seems to me that the box is rather of the Taisho era. Regards Patout
  10. Hi "1812 Overture" with much delay I wanted to thank you for this valuable information. A thousand thanks, cordially, Patout
  11. A document case of a private infantry superior, name ?? : Katayose ???? I am not at all sure of the translation of the name, if anyone can confirm me (or not !) and tell me what the correct translation is. This soldier was decorated on the same day (Showa 13 on 23 October) of the order of the rising sun 8th class, the golden kite 7th class and the medal of the incident with China. It seems strange to me that he is decorated on the same day with these three medals, is it exceptional or not ? have you often met this ? thank you for your valuable help Regards Patou
  12. Hi Nick, Thanks for your help, I think that the translation of the handwritten text will not be easy......... Regards, Patout
  13. Dear fellow collectors I have this diploma from the Japanese Russo War. There’s nothing unusual about it, except the little papers that were stuck on it. Is that someone can tell me what it says on it. I would also like to know the name of the soldier and his rank. Thanks for your help, Patout
  14. Hi Nick Here are the two-sided photos of the medal I hope it will help you for dating order. I have some tamatebako miyake boxes but unfortunately most of the medals have no markings, except the ones I spotted. The 3rd class is in a standard case but can be era Taisho? what do you think? the medal has a M punch. the 6th class medal (3rd photo, bottom left) next to the 3rd class medal with standard case seems to me the oldest of all, maybe Meiji era? Regards Patout
  15. Hi Nick, Very interesting document of L.o.H. concerning the very first Franco-Japanese mission, start of a long collaboration between France and Japan About my legion of honor and rising sun, the legion of honor has no manufacturer’s mark and the rising sun has no mark (I have looked carefully... nothing !) both medals are unfortunately very common.

  16. Hi, According to me, and according to what I have observed, the mark of the imperial workshop of the medals of Ozaka: "M" appeared in 1929 and was in use until 1936, and I think it’s the same for the other marks Cordially Patout
  17. Hi Hendrik Thanks a lot for this very interesting link........... and thank you also for opening to me this new research trail about : "difficult events in several counties in the months of February, March, April and May 1906" very cordially Patout (France-Vendée)
  18. Hi "Ravenft" For me it is the workshop of: 幣"- Zōheikyoku sei. Osaka’s mark is simply a "M" cordially. But maybe our friend Nick can tell you more. cordially

  21. Born on August 13, 1878, François Nicolas, Charles le Bleu was admitted to the Special Military School in 1899, he left as lieutenant at the age of 25 in 1903. He was promoted captain in 1914 and was assigned to the general staff of an infantry brigade at the time of the war. He then conducts night reconnaissance near enemy lines in order to define the location of the trenches and map them. During one of these recognitions, he was seriously injured by three shrapnel on 14 June 1915 in front of Angres (Pas de Calais). He was made a Knight of the Legion of Honour (Journal Offic
  22. Nick, I found this photo in a newsletter of the association "the national aviation magazine" Taisho era. it is a medal concerning aviation.... or may be airships (dirigeables) but has it existed ? is what you know it, never seen for my part !! Patout
  23. Hello Nick Thanks Really what a pleasure it is to have an answer to all my questions, and with in addition "cerise sur le gâteau" as we say in France (icing on the cake), the name of the manufacturer. I didn’t understand why we found this medal with and without ribbon I didn’t know there were three kinds of badges, it's clear now !! thanks for the photo of the diploma that I had never seen, as well as for the date of end of production of this badge. Regards Patout
