    Hi very nice display what is the small wooden box please with the winding handle as i have one myself and would love to know what it is unfortunately cant read Japanese.
    It is a Japanese Navy Megger Meter.

    This is for testing Insulation and Resistance. It was made by the Yokogawa Electric Works Ltd (They are still around, as Yokogawa Electric Corp) under contract to the Tokokawa Navy Arsenal in October 1942.

    The crank is to generate very high voltages in the thousands of volts (but low current) to test insulation of wires and generators/motors.

    Hope this is of help.

    Cheers,
    BOUGAINVILLE

    Hi Bougainville-san,

    Impressive collections !!

    Hi Taka,

    Here is a close up of my Yosegaki flag. I think that it belonged to a Kazuo Nakajima. This flag was taken near Torokina on Bougainville by US forces sometime during or after November 1943.

    If one could only be able to read all of the well wishes from friends and family as it would give it body and soul and bring it to life.

    Cheers,
    Robert

    Here is a brief on both parade swords:

    Japanese Naval Officers Command Sabre with Regulation IJN parade Sword Knot.

    Guard carries raised floral and 5 petal Imperial Naval Blossoms as well as the Toyokawa Naval Arsenal (anchor stamped blossom) and Suya Shoten manufacturers stamps. IJN Naval Blossom decorated Brass and Gilt double ring hanger scabbard.

    The Suya Shoten firm made musical instruments as well as swords and sword fittings so that is the reason why their maker's logo is a part of their name kanji stylised to look like a harp.

    Japanese Military Commanders Sabre with Samurai Fujiwara Family Silver Mon to handle back-strap.

    Handle carries raised floral and 10 petal Imperial Military Chrysanthemums of the 8 blossom design carried by Generals and Commanders.

    These swords were carried from the 1890s till the end of WW2

    Cheers,
    Robert

    Very impressive collection!

    I must admit that i have started to find these japanese militaria more and more interesting.
    Collect ROA, Cossack, Schuma and other WW2 Volunteer militaria.
