Unknown insignia


Recommended Posts

It is some type of nursing badge (that is what the large character in the middle means). The box has a date but the first few characters are blurred, it might be Showa Year 10 (1935) but I am not sure. The style of the badge is consistent with the 30s. The top three characters on the badge are the name of a prefecture, from memory it is Hyogo Prefecture. This is the prefecture which contains Kobe.

Not military, most likely for a nurse in a prefectural hospital at that time.
