    Default Japanese Military Sash or post war souvenir?

    I recently came across this item for sale and the seller does not know what it is. It was with a us wwii navy veteran estate. Does anyone know of its meaning or importance if any? Is it military or home front?
    Thanks

    This is for a Imperial Japanese Navy "Donald Duck" type cap.

    Here's mine (different writing as it is for a Machinest School).

    BTW...the writing is backwards (i.e. reversed). Needs to be flipped over to the otherside. My wife loosely translated it as saying "Imperial Japanese Navy" but she may be off. Maybe one of our experts here could provide a proper translation.

    Regards,

    Michael

    Default Navy cap tally

    軍海国帝本日大 is the correct orientation [dunno if you changed it already]. Pre 1945 the Japanese standard orientation was right to left when writing horizontally; post-1945 they adapted to the Western method and wrote from left to right: 大日本帝国海軍


    大日本帝国海軍

    Dai Nippon Teikoku Kaigun

    Greater Japanese Imperial Navy
    [or a bit smoother: Imperial Japanese Navy]

    NEVER DOUBT the WIFE. She translated it exactly how you did....but I said.....she probably made a mistake so I changed it to "Imperial"....

    Oh well...

    17 years! She says I have learned well....our conversations end with me saying either: "I'm Sorry" or "I was wrong".

    Just read the rest of your post. So she was partially wrong. She said it should be left to right. But since she wasn't around pre-45 I will let that one slide!

    SWMBO knows my pride won't let me say she's right so she lets this slide...sometimes. But the old adage still applies "Happy wife, Happy life, Happy Mom, Happy house".
