    Welcome to the forum Susan. I have rotated the picture to the correct orientation so it can be properly read by some of our Japanese /Kanji language experts here.

    Do you happen to have a picture of the whole item as "Kamikazi" is a word often used incorrectly to describe Japanese items.

    Once we see the whole item members here should be able to provide you with much more information on the item.

    Regards,

    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them

    Thank you all for replying and for your kind welcome. My 13 year-old daughter took the pictures then for some unexplainable reason deleted them. So I will try to get my in-laws to take a photo on their IPad.
    I looked and held the head band. It was hand embroidered in red thread. The plane was shot down next to my father-in-law's LCS ship.
