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

    • I've never smoked a single cigarette in my 62 years so I can't compare, but I can say that I like Lapsang Souchong tea, having tasted it the first time when I was 16, and a sea cadet. I'm not a Brit, though.

    • I like my tea strong enough for my spoon to stand up in. My father got me into it. When my father was at RAF Dum Dum 1943-47 most of his fellow officers drank ice cold drinks to mitigate  the heat, his Sikh batman warned him against it and said that strong hot tea would cool him down, most certainly did. So years later in the UK when everybody else was drinking iced drinks on a baking day the wood family was inbibing copious quantities of hot strong brews of Assam's finest. P
    • Hi ccj, Thanks for your comments. Funny how, for me at least, coffee has become a habit more than a conscience choice. It's the old, "Well if you having one (coffee) pour me as well". When I get together with my son-in-law, a former Brit, it's tea all the way. Thanks again. Regards Brian  
    • I live and grew up in the south (USA) and the drink of choice 7 days a week was cold sweet tea. I was unaware Lipton was British because that’s what most southern use for brewing tea. When I joined the army I learned most people in the north and western parts of the USA drank unsweetened tea and that was perplexing to my young brain. Now days I can’t stand sweet iced tea but it’s still the most common drink in the south, but, you can get unsweetened ice tea in the south. Im familiar with ho
