? WW2 Japanese Military Medal/Insignia ?

Recommended Posts

Greetings All.

I just purchased what I believe is a WW2 Japanese Military medal, award or insignia. I have no idea what this is for, so ANY help would be greatly appreciated.

I have attached two photos, which I hope come out clear, for you to review.

Thank you in advance for your assistance.

Linas

Hello Linas

This is a Rosette of the Imperial Time Expired Soldiers League badge. They come in many different colors and I don't know the category of yours.

I used the Book "in the Name of a Living god" by Paul L. Murphy and Steven L. Ackley to identify this badge, it has 8 pages only about this badge and its variants.

If you are planing to buy more Japanese badges I suggest you get a copy of the book.

cheers

Thank you Alex.

I though don't understand the "Time Expired" part. Can you help me? Or does it mean "Veterans"?

Thanks again. Linas

Hi Linas,

yes, this was one of the largest veteran's groups in Japan. Send me a PM if you are interested in a copy of the book since it is the only reference work on the subject.

regards,

Paul
