Dear Friends,

I recently acquired cased set of Imperial Japanese Navy Officer's parade hat & epaulettes. I have seen similar sets with similar maker's tag, but not named.

It will take a while before I actually get the case, so I have only these pictures.

It seems that this case has name / names written in Kanji (Someone has actually written two names with pencil on the case).

Sadao Chigusa

Sadao Nishimura

I checked the names and Kanji character's and it seems like the tag says:

西村 = Nishimura? But the two other Kanji charachters are not in my opinion for name Sadao?

I better stop speculation and ask for help :)

With best regards,

Jani

Hi Jani,

西村 is indeed Nishimura.

定男 indeed can be read as Sadao ;)

Guess the problem was - when you type Sadao into google translator you get 貞夫 instead of 定男 ;)

Nick

P.S. Thanks for the help Jktu :beer:

Thanks,

That is exactly what happened!

Now I need to find out who was Sadao Nishimura.
