    - entrenching tool carrier (straight and folding),
    - forestry and hunting items,

    Hi,

    It's a badge for Japanese Junior High/ High School and it looks legit.

    (Higashi Chuu) - Abbreviation of East High School.

    Of Note: Japanese High school grades, Grade 1~6 (Western countries Grade 7~12).

    For example:

    中一 (Chuu Ichi) - High School Grade 1 ( Grade 7)

    中六 (Chuu Roku) - High School Grade 6 (Grade 12)

    Regards,
    Taka

    Liner rim:
    大森地上特持町九六
    Ōmori Chijō Tokuji machi kuroku
    Omori Above-Ground, Tokuji Town, 96...

    Inside liner:
    森口
    Moriguchi [family name]

    inside helmet shell, black paint:


    Mori [family name]


    Omori Chijō changed its name a few times through the years:

    Before 1889:
    大森村
    Omori mura

    1889:
    大森村(大字なし) [apparently 大字 means "larger section of village"; so: without a larger section of the village]
    Omori Mura

    1932:
    大森町一〜九丁目、森ヶ崎町
    Omori Machi 1~9 chome, Mori-ga-saki cho

    Hi Guy-san,

    Sumimasen.

    Instead of 地上, it is (Ikegami) - Above Pond.

    特持, 徳持 (Tokumochi).
