Named WWII Japanese Soldier’s Group with Signed Personal Good Luck Flag, 27 1/2 by 35 Inches; 1,000 Stitch Belt; and Comfort Bag


The group consists of the items that were worn or carried in the war by a soldier named “Kobayashi”. The group consists of his personal good luck flag (the “Yosegaki Hinomaru”), approximately 27 1/2 by 35 inches in size. The flag is extensively signed and it bears the declaration of “Prayers for Eternal Good Fortune in Battle”. The flag has ties at two corners, and a few small holes in the writing that are not particularly noticeable at all. Affixed to the flag is a paper tag bearing handwritten kanji. The group further includes Kobayashi’s 1,000 stitch belt (the “Senninbari”) which bears handwritten kanji and, like the flag, has an attached paper tag which also bears written kanji. The belt is approximately 28 inches long, exclusive of the ties. Finally the group includes Kobayashi’s burlap comfort bag, bearing printed kanji. One side seam is partially opened. Overall the items in the group are in very good to excellent condition.
