    Default Japanese NLF helmet kanji

    Hello Friends,

    I'm posting a NLF shell in my collection for your review. I would also like to ask for translation of the kanji found on
    the inside if possible. As always, your comments are welcome and your help is appreciated.

    Have a good day!

    2721
    Fune/Boat #2721

    一柳 2721 連
    Ichiyanagi 2721 Ren
    Ichi-Yanagi [surname] 2721 Group/

    Caveat! I'm not certain about my identification of 柳 willow/yanage -- the handwritten kanji is decidedly different, especially the last part that has the radical instead of 卩. However, Ichiyanagi *is* a surname.

    Helmets with Kanji is very attractive.
    Collect ROA, Cossack, Schuma and other WW2 Volunteer militaria.

    Hi Mart , the example you have posted is a Japanese Civil Defence helmet . I would presume the anchor insignia to be a later addition .
    REGARDS AL

    We are the Pilgrims , master, we shall go
    Always a little further : it may be
    Beyond that last blue mountain barred with snow
    Across that angry or that glimmering sea...

    Hello,

    Thanks to all for your time and review. It's nice to know what this helmet is, and what it is not.

    BTW, is there any significance to the kanji on this helmet, surname and boat #2721?

    Take care,

    Mart
