    Hi Carlson , you have there what i believe to be a farewell banner for a soldier about to go to war . Many of these could be bought "off the shelf " and were very decorative and had coloured fringes sewn to the edges , however your example seems to be home made . Have a look at a couple of images i have provided

    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 mate, Yes Al, is correct they were also used to decorate community halls etc so homemade with soldiers name & also the name of the maker! The bigger the banner, the wealthier the maker/giver of banner. Im not sure what it says but have gone off to find out

    Hello, It took my friend a while to translate mine, this is what she saw in your straight away:

    祝吉野喜代治君
    長岡市 前澤操

    祝(shuku) = congratulating
    吉野喜代治 = Yoshino Kiyozi
    君(kun) = honorific used for male
    長岡市 = Place = NAGAOKA SHI
    前澤操 = Maezawa Misao

    She will look further when she gets a minute.
