I work with a Chinese physicist. He HATES the Japanese. But I showed this to him.
First, he said "Wow, that is so beautiful. You dont see that style of handwriting anymore. That's actually mostly Chinese characters, which means it probably came from one their farther islands. Definitely Japanese military"
He knows for certain some of it, not so much on the others. He is going to show it some friends who will absolutely be able to translate all of it.
What he knows:
Big letters across the top, going left to right:
"wish/hope/pray" Although the Japanese didnt pray
Basically: They are proclaiming that Japanese Military is Forever Lucky
On the left side, going down:
He thinks "God"
"Killed, specifically with a knife and small cuts"
"the persons name"
On the Right side, going down:
Basically: They dont care about fighting to the death
Small in the middle:
The bottom row is all women.
He thinks they are all people killed, but not certain.
