Two additional very interesting photos (pinched them from the old thread).

Both cavaliers are unknown.

Hi Nick,

nice pictures, but I think that the neckbadge of Kobashi is the Rising Sun, part of the grand officer's set he is wearing. Reflection of the light on the cabochon of the Rising Sun makes it look like a Taeguk, but the suspension is clearly the paulownia.
