日本海員掖済会
Nippon Kai-in Ekisai Kai
Sorta like a "Japan Seaman's Benefit Society"


Google Translate says:

[Established by the] Meiji New Government, in order to improve the labor environment and lifestyle habits of seafarers who were poor, it is necessary to provide seamen's accommodation, mediation of vessels, seafarer education, condolences / comfort to seafarers' bereaved families, Such as medical care for the seafarers, was established as an organization to do all welfare benefits.

Naval Association organization medal for the Imperial Seamen's Relief Association to help former seamen and their families. I'm told that this is the first class badge, and is the highest award bestowed.
