    3rd line from the left, Overseas Great Japan Sea Army Special something Land Battle Unit

    Card should be read from right to left so I'm going backwards. Not really into IJN so don't know their terminology, just being literal here for most part.

    It's a printed Happy New Year card from the year of the 2nd Shanghai Incident when the SNLF there was composed of 2400 men. Probably a member of the 4th battalion, equipped with 4 anti-aircraft guns. No mention of the man's rank.

    This building is still standing today. I found some photos of it. Circa 2016. I don't own the photo. Credit to its owner.
