This item was a bring-back from GHQ era by my paternal uncle, a USAAF MSgt.
The crossed pennants appear to be the National and Battle flags, and could be from Sino-Japanese early 20th C conflict.
My hope is that a translation of the characters adjacent to and beneath the flags, as well as the signature, will help ID and date the cup.
Any help will be greatly appreciated, and warmly acknowledged...Thanks! Warren

No, it is from Russo-Japanese War.

Commemoration of the victory against Russia

Hello, How would one read the following:
橋頭陣地ノ攻撃

Attacking from the bridgehead position or attacking the bridgehead position?

Thanks!

"attacking the bridgehead position" is correct.

I read;
学校長 海軍少将 桑島省
School Chief ADM Kuwashima shozo (Kanji for first name was 省三. I think Kanj 三 was dropped.)
He was School Chief of Naval Torpedo School between 1 December 1921 and 1 June 1923.

I am hoping one of our experts can look at the two mountain artillery units entered into this techou. I believe he was transferred to the 10th Ind Mountain Artillery Regiment from the 3rd Ind. Mtn. Art. Regt.? or is it the other way around? He went on to land at Bias Bay and fight in Hong Kong. I asked about these regiments years ago, and probably should have just posted the attached pic. for clarification. Any help greatly appreciated, thanks!
