    Recommended Posts

    hi all i have a number of japanese ship launching items all if which i have been able to trace their history except this one japanese mint made medal for the cargo liner akatsuki maru launched in 1936 kobe yard(mitsubishi) just unable to  find any history of this ship using the usual references i have been through the us navy records of japanese ships sunk during ww2 but no joy mind you many ships sunk were unknown if anyone has any info it would be appreciated, note there were 2 other ships named akatsuki a destroyer and a tanker both sunk during ww2 just to confuse things (thanks rich catalano for translations)
