My dad brought this back from the Philippines after WW2 ended (he was there at the end of the war), but I don't know what it is.

It is about 3 1/4" long and 3/4" wide.

I dont know but I have a collector friend in Japan I could ask. Can I copy your photos and send them?

Good luck.

Hey Richard. Looks like you don't need my friends help anymore. Glad you were able to figure out the mystery so fast.

Take care.

Your dad picked this up for a reason, tho' we may never know why. Kanji calligraphy was very important at all levels of Japanese society, including the military. He may have picked this up as a souvenir somewhere in a Japanese military installation in the Philippines, so hold on to it.
