    Default Japanese Homfront Women's Brigade/Group Sash

    Just won on ebay; my coworker who is japanese tells me it is a japanese womens brigade or similar and the makers label inside calls out one of the lower islands and manufacturer. Do those more versed in the 1930's/40's japanese writings agree or can give me more specific information on this sash and its meaning? thanks, Joe.

    The writings are same on both sides. It was advertised as a japanese soldier's combat uniform sash.

    a quick search of homefront and I found a similar sash posted - "This is a sash worn over the shoulder by women of the....Greater Nippon National Defense Womens Association....Dai Nippon Kokubo Fujinkai...these women would solicit people to put stitches on Senninbari,among other duties. "
