    I just received my first passbook. I've been through the Evolution of the Japanese Passbook article by Nick Koyima, which gave me an idea of what pages have which information. Can anyone help me with the person's name or unit?
    Thank you in advance, Paul

    His name was Shouhei Kanetoh, first in infantry than in the Finance Dept. Your photos are too small and fuzzy for proper reading. You need to scan or use a proper camera, not an I Phone.

    Any other hand written pages? Finance entries are not commonly seen.

    He was inducted into the 14th Inft Rgt in December 1927 and would have been called back to service as a reservist several times. He got switched to Finance as he made corporal. His original passbook would have been khaki color, but he likely got the new version when returning as a reservist.
