Hello everyone! This will be a long shot because of the writing being not so clear. I may or may not get a perfect translation but suggestions is all I need! All I can get out of this image is ハ which is the top character.

Please see image below, Thank you!

Is it written on a kimono (hanten) or like that? Seems to refer to "8th Fire Squad" or something.

Yes! It is written on the front lapel of the hanten. It also says on the back if I'm right with my translation (Ya - や) meaning the number 8. See picture below if you'd like!

It is probably a fireman hanten with your translation. Thank you Toritoribe-san!
