Iwo Jima Veteran Bringback !

This lot is really worth your time to look at because it is from Iwo Jima and features Japanese aircraft skin and bracelets made from it. It has a Japanese coloring book that a very skilled Japanese soldier colored with crayon .. The results are beautiful . The Marine was named Booth. I am not sure who he was with.

If odds are anything, this Japanese soldier is still on that island. Here are a few more pics. A .50 cal shell casing.

Awesome grouping! Love it!

 

I wonder if the bag was used to hold a Japanese flag or 1000 stitch belt? doesn't look very durable for holding heavy field stuff.

Paul,

 

The bag is a bag for valuables. 貴重品袋 = kichouhinbukuro

 

Most likely rings, watches, etc.
