Pabst Blue Ribbon Beer Who's Who In Japans Army ID
About a year ago I helped assist with some translation of Japanese Items that were brought back by a WWII Marine. The gentleman's father had brought back some incredible Japanese and USMC items but the Pabst Blue Ribbon Beer Who's Who was a fantastic find. Apparently as told by the son, his father was given one of these to help identify the rank that were on Japanese KIA on Iwo Jima and Saipan. While his dad's items were posted on another website I ran across this one on an auction site. An interesting item of WWII Breweriana and Militaria crossover.
