A little collection I got recently. +a Flag

I picked up this little collection recently. Supposedly it comes from the same guy. It consists of a yosegaki, three whistles, a pair of eye glasses, some string tied up rather fancy-like, a leather strap and buckle of some sort, and a 'duty bag'. It also came with a fire brigade flag (not associated with the other bits of stuff, it was just included in the auction).

Anything interesting you guys can tell me about this stuff?
Any idea on what the guys name was, anything interesting on the flag, what the fire flag says, and what that leather strap is? The strap almost looks like a mosin nagant dog collar.

The flag. After doing some thinking I'm wondering if this isn't a fake. BTW the group came out of Japan so the writing may not be a clue.

The name...I think

I'm not a hundred percent but I believe the name of the soldier to be either "Masa" or "Tadashi" Ohtaki. Hopefully someone here with better reading ability than me will give you a firm answer. At any rate the name, however it is read, appears on both the flag and the bag so yes, they would have belonged to this same young man. Interesting grouping...
