    Default Japanese Nambu Holster and Flag. Translation needed. Thanks

    I am posting a picture of a Japanese Nambu pistol holster that I acquired a number of years ago. Also I am adding some pictures of a flag that my father brought home after the war. He was a Seabee in the Pacific Theatre during the war. If you can help me with a translation of both items I would very much appreciate it. Thanks

    Flag is a wartime made fake, at least the writing is not done by anyone Japanese. SeaBees were infamous for making these to sell to unsuspecting fellow servicemen.

    Holster is cool, has "553空", 空 is "sky", so probably an aviation unit, can't make out the kanji below.
