    It’s written in the postwar word order. His family name was Okada, but the first name can be read in more than one way, Kazuki, Kazuyoshi.

    Thank you, Nick. Based on the post war order, it sounds like I should pass on this.

    I have one other question. There are two white covers that come with this cap. One has kanli on the edge. Is this related at all to the cap?
