    Posting this Arisaka and bayonet that I bought from a veteren(Vietnam),at a local gunshow.He had purchased it some 20 years earlier from a neighbor that had brought it home,from when he served in the Pacific Theater.Sorry the photo is a bit blurry,but it is a no prefix series,Koishikawa arsenal,#25439.Appears all original ,screws unburred,wood unsanded,bore looks good.Keep buying another firearm,when I get a little money together,instead of a new camera.

    Yours is a true vet bring back with the mum still intact. I have one as well but the mum has been ground down due to the fact that it was exported as surplus.

    Nice rifle and finish.

    Thanks for your coments.The flag in the background was brought back by my uncle,and given to me when i was a boy.I never knew what the proper name for the flag was before.He was in the US Army,and was in on quite a few island fighting.Though the Marines are first thought of (and rightfully so)when island fighting is concerned. The Army was there also.He went in the service in 39,and did not get out till 1946.All his time was in the Pacific.This particular flag was taken on an island off the west coast of Okinawa.The Army had landed there prior to the invasion,and used the island to shell Okinawa.He had told me that these flags were commonly found in a front tunic pocket.Signed by friends and some times blessed.They were susposed to help ward off injury or death.This flag had not protected this soldier.Just one of many WWII items I own. Many including pistols,bayonets, arm bands etc were given to me by my uncles.All had served in WWII,and there were only two nephews,and I was the only one interested.

    paddy , it`s a pleasure to see them , look after them , they are now a part of your family`s history ! The yosegaki flags sometimes were blessed at the local shinto shrine , and some were stamped with an ink marking at the shrine . Has yours any stamp marks other than the Kanji . I`d like to see your other items also cheers Al
