    Jou-Ki -- I don't know ... it might be an abbreviation of his navy rating. There is a lower-enlisted rank of
    上等水兵 Jōtōsuihei (senior seaman)
    So perhaps this is code for Senior Engineering Seaman?

    Fantastic. I have an unissued Imperial Japanese Navy Machinist School Cap. But have not come across one as nice as yours.
    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated
