This IJA soldier's personal items bag is marked on both sides and I would greatly appreciate a translation of both sides if possible.
Thank you, as always, for this assistance and optimally keeping this man's name alive -- if only in my collection.. Zigy

T, THANKS AGAIN!

Is his rank included?
Since this is for my personal museum -- which includes a great deal of IJA material -- I'd like to add the specifics of the contents if you have the patience...

Your generosity is much appreciated.

Unfortunately, no. There are only printed texts commonly used for all these kinds of bags except his name.
