    Got this with the Hoko Bukoro. Nice design. The censor stamp is on some Tokyo municipal notepaper! Interesting? The writing is under the flap that closes on the brass studs. Does it say anything interesting (can't get it to rotate, sorry)?
    Cheers,

    Found these:

    57th Supply Trains Hasegawa Butai Memorial Stone. Hmmmmm .... the memorial is located on a Navy base. There's a translation at the bottom of the page:

    TO SLEEP FOR EVER PEACEFULLY

    Google Books image. The image on the right of the page identifies this as Hasegawa Butai during the China Incident: 支那事変画報:第 8 集』( 1937 (昭を占領した我が部隊は、同夜 9 時、藍を占領した道盛部隊は長谷川部隊に製のトーチカ陣地を構築、鉄条網をついに国際公法を無視して笹源性 皇軍入城によって春たち帰った露化説)中国が国際公法を無ます。それを反日工作員になっなどと虚言を撤き散 らしていま 『アサヒグラフ」

    Also, I guess we need the given name of the Hasegawa battalion commander to narrow down the possibilities. Hasegawa is not an uncommon surname ... however, I'll wager there are more than a few who were "butai" commanders during the war ... in all branches of the military.

    If you know how to count strokes, you can look up most kanji by finding the radical. Kanji by Radical. Then, you select other "radicals" that are part of a kanji -- the results narrows down the possibilities of kanji to choose from. Knowing the number of strokes will let you find the kanji (I give myself +/- two strokes for incorrect stroke-counting).
