    Default WW2 Type 90 Imperial Japanese Army helmet unknown kanji writing

    Had this helmet for a few years now and never been able to translate the writing on the leather band of the helmet. If anyone could translate it I would be most grateful. Does anyone else think that the stains on the leather maybe blood? The helmet looks to have had a few coats of paint. There is definitely a layer of black paint with a sandy colour layer above that with a olive green layer above that. Notice the brush strokes on the final layer. Plenty of pics provided and can't wait for your replies. Thanks for looking.

    harryamb2 majority of Japanese soldiers fought to the death or committed ritual suicide than be captured so yeah if it is blood it's pretty gruesome alright.

    Nice to see you around again Taka-San!!

    Redstalker: Nice example, even with the tissue and blood.
    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated

    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them
