Stunning Nick! I love these!

The fellow in #38 was especially interesting - wearing both a Third Class Double Dragon neck badge, and a Republican Striped Tiger.

Not the done thing I would have thought.

Again, fascinating images!! Sincere thanks for posting these, Nick! It appears that Prime Minister Giichi Tanaka wears a Bulgarian St. Alexander Order star below his Striped Tiger star. Is it possible to verify that award?

It certainly looks like Bulgarian St. Alexander Order breast star ;)

I'll try to make a better close up of this star, but I don't think that letters on perimeter will became visible...

As for 100% verification - this info could be in "Peerage of Japan" published by the Japan Gazette in 1912. Unfortunately I don't have this one...

Glad you liked these photos lads! :cheers:
