    Default Japanese WW2 Dogtag

    This is the 4th item I am posting from the group I picked up today from a local Collector fair. This is not a militaria fair and I found a seller with a couple of relic pieces. After abit of a chat he invited me to some other items he had with him that he didnt have out and this was one of them. Its a Japanese dogtag made from brass but I have no idea what it says. I know as much as its for an enlisted man but thats it. Anyone have a translation of this one? Will sit well with the rest of my Japanese grouping which I will have to post over the next few days

    Cheers

    Neat grouping of relics! I echo what Haru wrote about the tag concerning the 52nd Division, although there is a small possibility that it could have come from a member of the 11th Independent Mixed Regiment that was based on Paluwat. At any rate, the tag most likely came from either Paluwat or its nearby neighbor (relatively speaking) Truk.
