Hi all,

I hope to get more shots of this little book at some point after I get a scanner. But I wanted to post these in the hopes that someone could translate. I'm hoping it's the name of the original owner

As soon as I can do scans I'll try to see about borrowing the book for a day or so and doing scans. But just in going through it that day it showed combat with small arms, bayonets, swords as well as what appeared to be training for Kendo.

Hi Paul,

Many thanks to Mamiko for the translation and you, Paul, for the post. :beer: I deeply appreciate the info. :D Another warrior's name is now known and not lost to time. I will pass this on to the museum, if will be in my report and will now be remembered by all who see the book.

Thank you both sooooo much! :cheers:

Dan

    • Two years down the line.   My mother-in-law passed away this summer, as did one of her sisters-in-law.   My exhibition opened, and we had a marvellous speakers' night with four Peacekeeping veterans, including a Meritorious Service Medal winner.  But Covid closed it down in March 2020, and while still there it hasn't reopened.
    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
