The red and white rosette is for "Special Member" or is the first type "Honorary Member" badge. THe second type "Honorary Member" badge is orange and white. The rosette for "Advisor" is purple/white/red/white. Blue and white rosettes were used by branch and chapter officials.

For anyone with an interest in non-governmental Japanese badges (fire, police, veteran, patriotic groups and Red Cross), I'd strongly suggest getting a copy of "In the Name of a Living God", by Paul Murphy and Steve Ackley. Steve can be reached at aunltd@aol.com. (Unfortunately, I do not get a commission)

Here Gordon is a certificate I hope to at least to identify the member and its age.

Very nice ! I love these Japanese award documents, even if I don't have the faintest idea what they say !!

Unfortunately all the award docs I haved seen for sale have been with the medals, which I already have, don't seem to see the docs on their own too much.

Occasionally I've seen them for sale but they are pricey on their own esp. the upper classes of awards,
