I have this WW2 hachimaki that was given to me by a WW2 US sailor who traded it for cigarettes with a Japanese POW. Has anyone ever seen this exact one or know how to figure out what unit it may have come from?
It has blood splatter and sweat stains on it, indicating the soldier wearing it was probably engaged in combat. It is in good condition, considering the age, having been kept for the past few decades in a glass covered frame.
I am wondering both what unit the soldier might have been in that was wearing it and what the value of might be. I am also working to figure out what the text means. I will update this thread when I find out.
