Diploma of the Russo War with handwritten annotations

Recommended Posts

Dear fellow collectors

I have this diploma from the Japanese Russo War.

There’s nothing unusual about it, except the little papers that were stuck on it.

Is that someone can tell me what it says on it. I would also like to know the name of the soldier and his rank.

Thanks for your help,

Patout

Thanks for your help,

I think that the translation of the handwritten text will not be easy.........

若衫市=A place name in a city in Japan

Long Zeding roughly means a street name

相马郡福田村=Place name

I guess it means it was mailed from this place

明治三十七八年=1904-1905年

This certificate was issued to Japanese soldiers who participated in the Russo-Japanese War. Nick has told you something else

This medal was set up on March 31, 1906. Its price in China is about twenty dollars. It comes in a wooden box and is particularly cheap

    • Thank you for sharing your story, it was most interesting and greatly appreciated, it makes this blog well worth the time to post. Regards Brian  
    • Hello I started collecting when I found my first Mauser cartridges in a field next to my parents' house next to Armentières. I was eight years old.  Then shrapnel, schrapnell balls, darts... That's how I became a historian. When I was 18, we used to walk through the fields with a metal detector to find our happiness. It was my time in the army as a research-writer in a research centre that made me love the orders of chivalry. I've been collecting them for 24 years now. Christophe
    • Thank you for your most interesting comment. The thrill of the chase didn't interest me in the beginning but over time it started to overshadow the act of simply adding yet another medal or group to the collection. Regards Brian  
    • I know the way I got into collecting is like so many other people; through a sibling. I also know that my love of history is barely unique in a place like this. So I know I have a shared background with many people. A less shared area - perhaps - is that I've always loved the thrill of the chase. When I decide I want, say, a 1914 trio with an original bar, to a cavalry unit, the utter thrill of getting out there and, (a) finding groups that fit the criteria and, (b) comparing them re: ranks, uni

Has to be with milk and although I prefer it sweet with a teaspoon of sugar, these day I usually go without. When the mood takes me I will also  drink Earl Grey (with milk of course). But if I am honest my favourite brew is coffee (espresso) can't stand instant coffee, though although I do like Camp coffee which is another British thing from days gon
