WWII Japanese Iwo Jima KIA Government Condolence Letter & Armband
One unique item that I have located is an official Japanese government letter written to a Japanese family who lost a family member in the Battle of Iwo Jima. This also includes a two armbands for a patriotic civilian organization. One of these letters is talked about in Dan Kings' A Tomb Called Iwo Jima.
