    Default Translation request: 1916 commemorative text on 120mm APHE projectile

    Hi all,

    The 120mm APHE projectile that is shown in the attached image has just come in. It has a commemorative text on it that is hard to make out, but fortunately the seller (or someone else) wrote it down on a separate paper. IIRC it is in commemoration of a battle between the Japanese and the Germans in 1916. I can read the rightmost column myself, which reads: "Taisho 5 year", i.o.w. 1916, so the year would be correct for that battle.
    Can someone perhaps give a good translation of the other two columns?

    Thanks a lot in advance, and with kind regards,
    Olafo

    Hi,

    Thanks a lot for that translation!
    It's very nice to see the complete translation. It also gives a hint as to the period in which this particular specimen was made (although one can of course never be completely certain when it was made vs. when it was marked).

    Cheers,
    Olafo
