Greetings, Everyone.
I'm a collector of Imperial Japanese Army militaria: Arisaka rifles, wartime Japanese flags of various types, grenade dischargers, ordnance, pistols, etc.. I've been seriously collecting for about 18 years, and have just recently heard of this group. I'm looking forward to learning from this group. Thank you.

Hi George, welcome to JREF!

We are not a (FB-like) group but one of the surviving web dinosaurs called "forums". Nice to have you on board. :)

Welcome! None of us are experts on militaria but I've seen a lot of queries on militaria related to language answered, such as the likely origin of signed flags. Hope we can help.

Welcome George ! I jp2.jpg I don't own any Japanese weapons , but love to read about them. FirearmsNews.com on Facebook just did a big writeup on Japanese firearms you might like to read. I've been shooting since 1955 and like to collect guns I can find ammo for. I'm down to only 13 guns now in my collection , wife has shut me down , LOL.
