Hello.

I have recently bought an old paybook from japan.
It belonged to Kikuharu Sekizawa.
He was born in Kanagawa-ken on May 10, 1925.
There is no much information as he joined up on April 6, 1945 and the war was about to end.
I think his previous job is writen in the second picture.
Any extra information is welcome.
Thanks in advance.

The reading of his given name 菊治 can be Kikuharu, but Kikuji is more common.
What is written on the second picture is 横商卒; a graduate of 横浜市立商業学校, the present 横浜市立横浜商業高等学校 Yokohama Commercial High School.

Thank you Toritoribe.

On the other side, are you able to understand the 2 last lines on the last picture?
Thanks in advance.

September 10, appointed as an infantry cadet
On the same day, promoted to the rank of first-class private

The location names are illegible in other sentences.

What a pity. I thought we could discover what division was assigned to.
As always, thank you very much for your help.
