Large WWII Japanese Wooden Air Raid Warning Sign


A long painted sign, approximately 5 3/4 inches wide by 35 1/2 inches long. One side of the sign is painted blue with white kanji while the opposite side is painted red with white kanji. The blue side was displayed to warn of a possible enemy air attack with the notice that an “Alert” had been issued (“Alert Warning Issued”). The Red side advised the population that the “Alert” was now an “Alarm”, indicating that an air attack was imminent, with the message on the sign declaring “Air Raid Alarm Warning Issued”. The sign has expected spots and minor dents, but overall it remains in excellent condition.
