Help in identifying a document


Recommended Posts

I just acquired this on eBay for my collection of award documents. The text in the center appears to be hand scrivened. Can anyone identify what this is for or provide any context for it. Thanks in advance.

Original document for the China Incident Medal.




Document dated March 16, 1938.

Since medal was created by Imperial Edit No. 496 only on July 27, 1939 we are dealing with posthonemous awarding.

March 16, 1938 is the date of soldier death. 

Medal was awarded to army transportation corps superior private Kobayashi Shūichi.
