    Hi Steve,

    I don't think it's Japanese. Maybe someone knows better but I've never seen anything related to Imperial insignia that looks similar.

    Regards, Rod

    Never seen anything like it. If it's Japanese, which I doubt, perhaps it was made in Japan post war for a US or other airman etc

    Definitely not for American use.

    ..I am convinced its Japanese made. Just unable to identify..it has been suggested its a pilots badge for one of the Japanese puppet states....would love to find a picture of it being worn.
    The star is the same fitting and size as the pilots one in my picture... and of course the rear paper matches ..!! ;-)

    Did the Japanese ever use that shape and design of what I assume is a handheld shield in battle?

    It looks very a familiar European style to me like the Templar/Crusader shield below and The British Eighth Army shield with yellow Latin Cross:

    I am sure there is a heraldic name for this style of shield but I do not know it.
    I collect, therefore I am.

    Nothing in science can explain how consciousness arose from matter.

    After the purge of the Samurai class, western influence covered many areas of design , so think the shape of the shield may have limitations...but every avenue is worth looking at ..many thanks for your help..i am still googling lol
