Lt.-Commander Sakuma, holder of the Crown Prince's Voyage to Korea Medal

Recommended Posts

Gents,

Is there any information (e.g. picture) of 佐久間八郎 / Sakuma Hachirô?

As far as I know, he was Lt.-Commander (engineer) and got the Crown Prince's Voyage to Korea Commemorative Medal (s. photo below). Another question would be- why did he got this medal?

 

BR,

Chris

All involved (with the court rank above sonnin) got one.

Gold versions were issued for imperial family members.
