    I'm not sure they were used in WWII, though, were they? It seems more like WWI. Ohmura says they were "commissioned in 1912.

    It ended when the shingunto and its tassel was introduced.

    Some officers did wear the kyugunto after the shingunto was introduced. Speciel the navy officers loved the navy kyugunto and used it until end of war.
