Very attractive grouping, thanks for sharing. 

I am eagerly collecting Pre-WWII USMC material. Any Marine Corps Span Am era, WWI, Banana Wars, or China Marine related material is especially sought after.

Great uniforms. As great as they are though, the diary and /or note book is fascinating. It would be great to find someone to translate. My Dad was in the Pacific so the thoughts of the Japanese WW2 soldier are as interesting as it gets. I hope it's a diary. Please keep us posted.

I will, I’m looking for someone to translate it now, it has sketches and diagram type drawings so I’m thinking it might be more military than personal

Oh, tarry and be strong; Tell God in prayer. What is thy hidden grief; Thy secret care.

Yet, if no answer come; Pray on and wait: God's time is always best; Never too late.

The diagram on the open pages looks like some kind of schematic?  Maybe he chose to bring that home because it has something to do with a Japanese version of his own specialty?  Just a guess.  Please let us know if you find more info.

Could be, just a thought I had, maybe they were pillboxes or a trench line, one sketch I didn’t show was of a boat maneuvering. I will definitely let you guys know when I find out, I did narrow it down within 90% that he picked it up on Okinawa, his daughter said he also had the soldiers rifle but it went missing years ago.
