Sea Disaster
Rescue Society Medals
水難救済会メダル
Very rare award document from the Japan Sea Disaster Rescue Association. It
shows that the recipient did something to become a Meritorious Member of the
group. This probably accompanied the Merit Medal, but it is not specifically stated in
the text. Different scenes on each corner and at the top, and the border is decorated
with cherry blossoms. Given to a man named Kimura Yoshimitsu.
The document is dated May 24, 1921.
