Wounded Soldier’s Archive

DATE
Decade: 1930s
Century: 20th (1901-2000)

Archive of a soldier named Nagaoka Kiichi, who was wounded during the Shanghai Incident, 1932. Included are his personal notebook, which has hand written information about Nagaoka, including the fact that he was wounded. He was born in 1909 (Meiji 42) and enlisted in 1930 (Showa 5). He participated in the Shanghai Incident of 1932, where he was wounded in action. There is also a printed list of soldiers’ duties in the inside pocket. Together with his personal notebook comes his wound badge. Finally, there is a wound badge book which has documents inside, including the original paper that came with the wound badge as well as other items, including a rare early Japanese train ticket. A very historic and fascinating archive of personal material, the former property of a Japanese soldier who participated in the Shanghai Incident which lead to the start of the Second Sino-Japanese War.
