Description:

CAPTURED JAPANESE OFFICER'S LEATHER FOOT LOCKER
An uncommon World War II relic, a Japanese officer's solid leather foot locker captured by an American officer for his own use. The trunk, 30" wide x 20" high x 13 1/2" deep is fully lined and is fitted with heavy steel hinges and key locks at front. A red leather family or unit emblem is affixed to the front of the trunk, while (presumably) the officer's name has been painted to the top of the trunk. Either side of the trunk is fitted with a strong leather handle. The inside of the lid bears the new owner's information modestly penned in black ink: "Lt. Col. G. W. Johnson O-286216 Air Corps". Very good condition.
