    Default IJA Sergeant Major Shoulder Rank Tabs (陸軍曹長肩章)

    Hi All,

    I just received these IJA Sergeant Major shoulder rank tabs, today.

    I'm not sure about the date of manufacture, but I heard these were established in Meiji 39 (1906).

    陸軍 (Rikugun) - Army

    曹長 (Souchou) - Sergeant Major

    肩章 (Kenshou, Katashou) - Shoulder Rank Tabs

    Any comments welcome.

    Cheers!
    Taka

    Thank you for the kind comments, gentlemen.

    The tabs are called Showa 5 style, and some other examples have felt, or cotton backing instead of the leather.

    Theses are my fist pair of Japanese shoulder boards, I just don't see many for sale. (At least in China)

    Regards,
    Taka
