First side, line on the left reads "Number 136" which is apparently the soldier/officer's personal ID number. The Japanese Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare have a list of numbers of individual soldiers. Second line (first symbol unk. at this time) reads 3133 which is a Code number for the unit the soldier belonged to. This info is in the same format as my Japanese dog tag that I found on a skeleton on Peleliu and had it translated by a Japanese interpretor. This seems like an unusual identity disc. Mine is made of brass. Do you know where your grandfather found the tag? What unit did he serve in (I assume he was in the military?).
