    Here's the translation from Guy, thanks again ghp95134!


    花村弥太郎
    Hanamura Yatarō

    I think we'd write it like this in the American fashion:

    Mr. Yatarou Hamamura
    Kitazawa 2-Chome 167
    Setagaya Ward, Tokyo City


    The date:
    昭和十八年八月
    August 1943

    I think your helmet doesn't need the officers cap star on the front of it friend. But wait and see if any of the other guys think it is OK.

    Thanks Steve! I got mixed reviews when I posted this before. Added more photos this time. The leather is in remarkably good condition. I don't think it could be 70 years old feels new and does not crack at all when bent. (Yes I know bad habit testing leather like that).
