    Thank you gents for the replies. With a little more knowledge on these since my last trip I managed to find a fair amount of cups but most of them just seemed to have the generic crossed national and battle flags. I regret not picking up a horse one that I saw but I was fast running out of cash there. It was quite a big market and that was the only bottle I was able to find that I could positively identify as army/navy. With the look of the helmet and gunto design, it was always coming home with me. Funny thing is that I didn't even notice the turtle before Alan pointed it out.

    Thank you very much for the translations Guy - much appreciated. Im assuming cup 3 is something to do with the IJN.
