Japanese Troops at Peking

The signed Guntai Techo and medal of Japanese soldier, Ando Isuke

A guntai techo is basically the service record of the soldier. Besides the details of when and where he served, it contains the Emperor's Proclamations, the soldier’s personal details like address, height, etc., honors and medals he was awarded and in the case of very old examples, a personal description, pay records and the results of shooting tests.
