    Good morning guys,

    As you can see, I’m interested in Japanese medals, but I don’t know Japanese. I found a lot of information about the medals and their inscriptions but not about the inscriptions of the cases.

    For this reason, I would be very grateful if you could help me with the literal translation of the War Medals and Commemorative Medals cases. I think it may also be of interest to other collectors.

    I will not translate them all, but will give you the ending key words only 従軍記章 read as jyugunnkishoh means military service medal, normally translated as war medal. 記念章 is read kinenshoh, meaning commemoration medal. Most war medals are named by the years of the conflict instead of locations like Manchuria. You should at least learn how to read numbers and era names.

    Thank you very much! I had some problems with the last kanjis, the first are the same of the name of the medal. I will try to translate all of them and post it here.

    Thank you one more time!

    Is not a perfect translation but is curious to see that the Manchuria medal use the years of the incident and China medal use the location.

    That was because the China Incident was the first in history to have a Ronkoh-Kohsho before the Incident was over Story of the Golden Kite
