    I have some of the story....

    Middle left picture, right to left, first 2 characters, 'Shichi Taka' a county (or something similar), 3rd 'Cho', village, 4th 'Kai' group, 5th number 10, 6th number 5, 7th 'section'.

    Top right, a bit more difficult, reading right to left, first 2 characters are a family name and the second 2 a first name, but I don't have a translation becuase it could be multiple pronunciations. The last 2 charcaters have thrown her completely and she even resorted to Google for help but didn't come up with anything that made sense, but as this is a CD helmet based on the options I was given (one being 'arse') I think it is 'Accounting', possibly for the department they worked in. I'll let you know if I get anything clearer.

    Steve.
