A nice 100% original brought-back Japanese meatball rifle flag - this is a nice LARGE SILK WW2 version that were often taken by the soldiers to the battlefield to put them on their rifle prior to battles or parades! Size approx. 1 x 0.5 meter. The strings for attachment to the rifle are still present (see attached photo's of such flags being worn at the front), with the characteristic leather reinforcements; these are still in OK condition. The flag has several small stains, but it is in generally good condition given its approx. age of 80 years (no rips, or large damages). The history of the flag is reflected by this nice patina on this particular example; a true battle worn flag!
Great and rare 100% original item for your Japanese WW2 collection!
