This Japanese crate was probably used for ammo. It is well made, and has kanji on the front and rear, with two sturdy handles on the side. This crate was liberated by an American soldier named Don, who was a member of the 32nd Division, known as the Red Arrow Division. The inside cover has an address to a base in San Francisco, and he also added a personal touch, a nude line drawing. The name Don is also written with pencil on the side of the box. Many times U.S. troops used these captured boxes to send home souvenirs.
