    I don't know if this for the KNIL at that time. But the cover of KNIL soldiers marching make this cigar case really unique

    Some entry of it was made during Japanese occupation era. The very interesting entry is:
    2605 (japanese year for 1945)
    1/5 Hitler pemimpin Djermania mati sebagai pahlawan dimedan perang (Hitler the leader of Germania died as hero in the battlefield).
    I think the Japanese military in here used the german radio news regarding hitler dead at that time.

    My favorite.
    Dateless though. But i think it's made in 19th century, i guess during Victorian era. This pocket book deals with marching in soldier school, company school, and battalion school. And its for the Javanese soldier who still barefoot at that time. One of it's instruction deals about how to put the correct toe position during attention.

    It's been a long time since i post my finding again. Firstly because i don't have any camera and it's a coincidence too there's not so many worthy showable finding i found.
    Well these is what i got in these past 2 months. Better than nothing i guess.

    And the speech or writing for a meeting. The title meaning in english is "The Basics of Japanese Spirit". It's 4 pages and interestingly is even though it's written in Bahasa Indonesia but the writer also put some japanese language in there. This papers is my personal jackpot
    Oh and it's dated in 1942

    Nice what you dig up. That speech sure is a keeper.
