Help needing to identify soldier name and rank on Showa document case

I have in my collection these three almost identical boxes for documents of Showa era.

I am only able to understand "imperial army" without knowing the rank and function of the soldier and their names. If anyone can translate ?... this help will be greatly appreciated.

 

Then I have a question for the experts about the colour of the cord (ribbon, string ?) around these boxes.

As we know the name "order of merit" is used for both order of R.S. and S.T.

 

In this case where the box mentions "ONLY" one medal, can we conclude that it is the colour of the cord that allows to indicate which order it is (red for R.S. and purple for S.T.) ? right or wrong ?

see below : 7th class of S.Treasure  with purple cord?

 

Regards

Patout

I am afraid the color of the cord  (red/purple ) doesn`t correlate with order (rising sun/sacred treasure).

Superior private 

Infantry

Another possibility

笠山和三郎 - Kasayama Wasaburō

I`ll look at the others a little bit later.
