I'm looking for help translating 5 lines of kanji from a senninbari belt. I'm told they contain "a field history of the owner, “From Aug 1937 to July 1938, participated in various operations in Northern China as Artillery Unit Observation Chief." The owner's name. Fukuda Nobuo, is included in the text. It would be a great help to know the information from this in detail.

Thank you very much for any help you can provide.
Tim

There is no additional information. You already got everything written there.
If you are asking about the owner, there was an artillery major of the same name, but he graduated from Army War College in 1944, so he wouldn't be the owner of the belt.

Thank you Toritoribe.
I'm a little surprised there wasn't a more specific unit designation.
Once again your assistance has been a great help.
