I'm quite the fan of The Land of The Rising Sun. (anyone else here like Zatoichi!?) Did the Japanese have any prominent rings or jewelry for their military during WWII and before? What about WWII postcards?

If you look at the left margin of the image, I think that round black ball is a floating sea mine which is/are the targets.

Note the ramrod on the rifle

Over the years I’ve seen some silver rings with patriotic kanji. They were not awarded by military. None in my collection. There are tremendous amounts of military themed postcards.

Nice looking cards.. Sure there was a ton of scenery PCs, mountains, trees etc. But these military theme cards are nice.. Any of actual photos of military leaders,,or equipment,,Zeros, tanks etc.?
