Japanese Pocket Ranks II

Here is another Japanese “Pocket Rank” from World War 2. A bit more elaborate than the first one I posted but still construction is crude.

The “Gunso” (Sergeant) rank tab seems to have been attached upside down. Stars should be aligned to the left and a tip of the star should point up.

Unfortunately I do not have a translation for the name tag yet

Construction details on the backside, it was probably attached to the uniform by a (now missing) button or a safety-pin
