Hoping to get guidance on this ordnance shipping tag. I have no issues with the unit code, I know that. What I am interested in are the rows of kanji on the right hand side of the tag. Does anyone know how this tag is read? Is it routing information, to/from type of info., or something else? Any info. on how to read this tag is greatly appreciated, thanks!

Hello shidan,

陸兵政補弾第1656号 名補高出
名補高輸票第408号5016梱ノ内

陸兵政 = 陸軍兵器行政本部 Army Ordnance Administration Headquarters
名補 = 名古屋陸軍補給廠 Nagoya Army Supply Depot belonged to Army Ordnance Administration Headquarters
The duties Nagoya Supply Depot Storage and management of various types of shells including AA gun’s shells.
高 = 高射砲 ? AA gun
弾 = shell
補弾第1656号, 高輸票第408号5016梱 = control numbers

So I think the above is the shipping tag of AA gun shells from Nagoya Supply Depot to 14th Army Field Ordnance Depot.

I think that 高 means 高蔵寺分廠(Kozoji branch) of Nagoya Depot. So, it cannot be said AA gun shell.
