Imperial Japanese Named Navy Seaman Second Class Uniform Grouping

 

The grouping consists of following items:

 

Blue colored Navy tunic with attached collar Dickie. Open neck with original tie string still attached. To the left sleeve is a rank insignia sewn in Place, a anchor with two striped to the top, all in yellow rayon threads. Between the anchor and rank stripes is a alloy metal Cherry Blossom with green enamel works. The badge is pinned in Place. The insignia shows the rank “Navy Seaman Second Class. Inside is fully lined with black brushed cotton. Original manufacturers is machine sewn to the black lining. It reads: Issued from Yokosuka clothing depot January 1944. The collar Dickie stamp is very faint and to hard to read for us. The tunic is in good used condition.

 

White drill / work under tunic. The cloth tag (label) on the white undershirt gives the following information:
The original wearer’s registration number is “Sasebo Volunteered Sailor No. 46473” his name “Shigeru Maeda” the shirt issued in April, 1943: size and production date UNCLEAR. The work tunic is in good used condition.

 

Pants, made of dark blue wool. Straight legs. One button missing. Tie string still in Place. The maker mark stamp is almost all gone and impossible to read. There is some holes located to the right lower leg and to the groin area, see Pictures!

 

Sailors cap, a very nice and rather scarce example with removable White top. The center band reads: “Japanese Imperial Navy”. Chin strap still in Place. Two metal ventilation grommets to each side for ventilation. Inside is fully lined with black brushed cotton cloth. Manufacturers label also still intact and its clear but the later, still war time personal information is rather hard to read. We can make out the name and rank “Tamotsu Fukaya, engineer or maintenance”.

 

The grouping also comes with a reproduction tie. The tie has no real value but is a good Place holder untill a original example turns up.

 

The cap and tunic/jumper is named to two different sailors. So not all parts comes from the same sailor. All match very nicely together though.

 

Not easy to find, a complete Imperial Japanese Navy grouping. All match perfect together and will make a great addition to any museum or Collection!!
