bottom: 1st or 2nd class breast star of the Order of the sacred treasure.


1:Order golden kite 5th

2:1894-95 war medal

3:1900 Boxer rebellion medal (I think, but there are options)

4:Should be the 1904-5 medal but it doesn't look right.

5:Red cross order of merit

6:REd cross membership medal

2nd pic.

1st is 4th class rising sun

4th is 1894-5 medal

2nd last is Manchukuo national foundation medal (he's old so this could be I guess)

last could be Manchukuo Imperial visit to Japan medal

3rd pic last medal is Manchukuo Imperial visit to Japan medal

I hope this helps and I hope I'm right...
