Requesting translation assistance please

Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone,

While going through a drawer of military prints for an article I am working on  I came across this one that I actually forgot I had. I believe it is a commemorative print showing victorious Japanese soldiers beside the Great Wall. On the back is a stamp which I think could have been a mark denoting the piece was authorised by the government, but that is only speculation on my part. On the front and under the picture is an embossed section with a descriptive message. Could someone please translate these two sections for me. It would be most appreciated.

Since "finding" this print I have decided to frame it and hang it on the wall in the collection room, which was my intention several years back when I purchased it.

Thanks for any assistance you can give me.

Regards

Brian

Thank you for your help, 1812 Overture. I am guessing that the print is much like the China Incident Medal in that it is a commemorative piece. 

I have framed the print and it now resides in the gallery that is the hallway between my office and the collection room. I've included of a photo.

Again, many thanks for your assistance.

Regards

Brian
