    This is how a WW II Imperial Japanese Army soldier would appear during the mid war years of 1943-1944. This is a lightweight summer tropical uniform,and the helmet is the standard issue M-90 type with the original brown paint and net. Notice how the chinstrap ties under the neck, in the tradition of a Samurai warrior. The soldier has a leather belt with 3 ammo pouches, (only 2 are visable), a bayonet, haversack, and canteen. Most of the individual pieces of equipment have kanji characters inked on them which is the soldiers name or unit. The small leather pouch worn on the chest carries a folded paper talisman, or good luck charm to ward off bullets, and has a stamp on it from the soldiers home town Buddist temple. All of the equipment was brought back or shipped to the United States by various vets during the war or shortly afterwards during the occupation of Japan.
