Next up, two different versions of the Red Cross medal for the 1904-05 Russo Japanese War. The Geneva Cross version is very scarce, the other suspender (which reads Commemorative) is scarce.

Now a genuine group which came with the service papers verifying all the awards. It is to a Private Kawamura Manjiro and was awarded for the Japanese attack on Tsingtao at the start of the First World War.

 

Most of the Japanese "groups" that you see for sale, especially on evil-bay, are put together. This is a nice original set comprising the Rising Sun 8th Class, 1914-15 War Medal, Victory Medal and Showa Enthronement Medal.

I know this is an old post, but this is a great group and so nice that it's IDed and you have the paperwork.  Tsingtao items are scarce and when confirmed are so very nice. Thanks for sharing.
