Default Japanese bring back box with some Japanese items

I thought I would share this Japanese box filled with some souvenirs that were sent home by a local veteran.
The address label was just screwed onto a captured Japanese box and sent home.

There is also a smaller meatball flag that's not shown in the picture. I don't think the flashlight was an issued item but still very neat.

I love these 'captured' items!

I am not sure what the box originally was used for.

The sight was about $400 - the 47mm cannon is at the museum in Pearl Harbor and would probably cost you about 15-20 years in the Federal Pen!!

Ha! You just made me laugh out loud! Thanks! No need to go back to Leavenworth (I spent 6 weeks at a company/battalion-level staff school there back in 1990).
