Hello to any and all brothers in collection.

 

I need your precious help in translation about a Taisho document and box. I'm only able to understand Taisho 4 (1915) Nov. 7, and 7th class rising sun order.

But.. I don't know the most important , the soldier name.

Furthermore, I should like to know the meaning of the text on the top of the box under pawlonia blossom, between palms.

And, last question, according you is all that items matching to the same person.

Thanks for your help

Patout

In the case of this certificate it says "Junior 4th Rank, 3rd Class Order of Merit, 5th Level of Bravery, Hirata Yukihiro"

Hello Paul, I've seen you wrote this in post #4, but I can't really understand wich are the two kanji to write "Level" and "Bravery"... Can you help me about this ?

Thank You.

Dan.

This is because there is no such thing as "bravery level".

勲三等功五級 ,

where    = merit =  sacred treasure or rising sun order 

= meritous service/deed (in fact  is simply an alternative  form of ) = golden kite order.

as for  等 = 級 = grade/class

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
