Congrats on your second tag Robin.

 

It seems to be from the 53rd Infantry Regiment, 17th Division (says "Walk" 53 on right side although it's difficult to see in the photo). The center column says "Walk" (infantry) unable to read the middle character, which is likely an abbreviation for the company commander's name. Below that is the character for Chu, meaning chutai or company. Right side is 39 (something), soldier's personal number.

 

This tag seems to be theater made sometime before 1941, the 17th Division was in China  for most of the war including during the period this tag was made.
