Japanese Military Code of sorts
« on: October 24, 2014, 01:59:16 pm »
Even my translator didn't know what this is, do any of you guys have a clue what it say's because I'm stumped. It's at the top of a military document in a game I'm translating, followed by the date and then it's contents. I'm unsure if any of you would know but help would be appreciated, thanks.

=D Good news, I deal with a lot of Japanese government/court documents. They make me hate life in general, but that's another story for another time.
It's either a document/form number (think the tax documents, every single form has a number so you can research by form) OR a document number for the individual report (kinda like when you call up customer service, they give you a number so they can research your problem in the future).

I'm guessing it's a report number. It reads almost exactly like Japanese litigation documents.

Does that fit in with the context?

Thanks, I kinda understand now. The memo was a document sent to the J-SDF probably by the governemt or head command telling them to leave a quarantine area so would what you wrote work for it?
