Recommended Posts

Hello

 

I am hoping some one can tell me more about this award document I have? The only thing I know is it was awarded to a Vice Admiral

 

 

Many thanks

 

Cheers

Larry

The sharpness of your photo is too low for me to read it.

Thank you Nick  :)

I can see where a case of mistaken identity could occur.

I'm guessing there is nothing special about Lieutenant Commander Kenkura Kobayashi?

 

Again Many thanks for your help. It's truly appreciated.

 

 

Cheers

I have found out that a ( 新高,1904, Captain Kobayashi Kenkura 小林研蔵) commanded the protected cruiser IJN Niitaka as part of the Second Fleet during the Siege of Tsingtao in 1914.

 

By the looks of the kanji this would be the same person, correct? What's the first part say? My literal translator says "New High"!

 

 

Cheers
