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.


  1. Very interesting, any idea what they say? I love your sight and check it out a few times a week.

  2. Thank You Andy! I haven't received them in the mail yet, I plan to have my friend translate them when they arrive. Thank you for checking out MIFG! It is appreciated!
