    Unit 18491 was code for the 147th Airfield Battalion, ending the war in the Philippines, as part of the 41st Army. The unit was involved in aircraft maintenance, supply and airfield security. Whether the tag is original is a hard call as it was not made with proper stamping dies for each character, but improvised. However the scratched on characters are properly balanced suggesting it was done by a Japanese, making it a very plausible improvisation.
