  1. 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
  2. Hello "922F" thank you for all this additional information and for the links to the photos Patout
  3. 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
  4. 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 r
  5. 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 styl
  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. thank you it’s always a plus to have the photographer’s name Regards
  9. 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

  11. Hi Nick, Thank you, very interesting... I look at all this... cordialy Patout
  12. 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 t
  13. Hi Nick, Thank you again for this very helpful information It's perfect, Regards Patout
  14. 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
  15. thank you Nick for this information and for the web link Regards, Patout
  16. Hi Nick thank you for this additional information, it is much clearer. Do you know the nature of the second document (in broad strokes) ? Regards, Patout
  17. Hi, Hi, thank you very much for your answer and for this help.... unfortunately this "raw" translation always remains a little bit obscure. But this allows despite everything, to see that these documents are of civil nature. Regards, Patout
  18. Good morning everyone, I have these three documents in my collection and I have no idea of what they are ! I need your help for identifying them.... if possible.! nb: Documents without watermark so I don’t think they are very important or interesting ??? Thanks for your opinion Patout
  19. 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
  20. Diplomat, consul, ambassador ? who is he? Hello everyone... Does anyone knows him or .........unknown ? Regards, Patout
  21. Hi Nick, Very big thank you for your help, and for your essential presence on this site. a single word : Respect ! very cordially Patout
  22. 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
  23. Hi Nick, This is great .......I could not dream such a complete and fast answer !! cordially Patout
  24. 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
  25. 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
