I purchased this at a yard sale, was surprised the family did not keep it. Would love more information about it, and what it says. I bought this for $1.00. On the top in english it says Co. C 34th inf.

The picture is rotated 90 degrees to the right.

What is written at the left end is;

石井操君の輝かしき御入團を祝して
海軍大將山本五十六閣下之語を贐す
百戰百勝不如一忍
宮下開一
I congratulate you Ishii Misao on your shining enlistment,
and send you the admiral Yamamoto Isoroku's words.
To endure without fighting is better than to win every battle.
Miyashita Kaiichi
(presenter's name)

Thus, the recipient's name is 石井操 Ishii Misao.

There is another words;
明朗ナル石井君ヨ
君ノ前途ヲ祈ル
A cheerful person Ishii,
I wish your happy future.

The rest are all signatures.
