    Default IJA 8 Line Field Exchange

    Here is my newly acquired IJA 8 line Field Exchange. Made in April 1940. Would be interesting to know the manufacturer's name?

    As shame that the accessories are missing, can only guess what should've been there.

    Also this piece of paper was found inside. One can only wonder what is it about and if it belongs to the field exchange?

    Any comments and photos of missing accessories will be very much appreciated.

    Many thanks,
    Kind regards,
    BOUGAINVILLE

    Hi BOUGAINVILLE,

    You have a very nice item.

    Here is the translations:

    Many thanks Taka for your help.

    Does the moth eaten piece of paper belong to the Field Exchange at all?

    Many thanks,
    Cheers,

    Anytime Robert-san.

    The paper has noting to do with the Field exchange at all. (The great thing about Vitamin B)

    A very nice item Robert , it looks to have been very well preserved in its fine leather case .

    Always a little further : it may be
    Beyond that last blue mountain barred with snow
    Across that angry or that glimmering sea...

    Many thanks all for the nice comments.

    Just wondering if the correct IJA designation would be "Type 93 8 Line Field Exchange"?
