    How cool is this! "Captured documents" retained for posterity.

    I can recognise some of the kanji here by comparing it with the notes from the translator Luwika S.

    If not too much bother, it would be great if you could post some of the pics from the album too.
    No need for the grisly ones nor the personal ones (familily), if thats a problem.
    Anyway, Im way more interested in the 'officers with swords' & 'military ceremonies' pics if at all possible.

    I assume your big toe is sticking upwards like that with the strain of pushing the camera button!
    Hello Scout

    I'm sorry it took a while to get back to this. I decided to include the 'family photo' aswell as these 4 seem to be a set of 'captured japanese personal photos'. I would like to know what the photos are showing if anyone has an informed opinion.

    I now have the two interrogation reports from the Australian War Memorial I ordered copies of, and also the two nominal rolls for the 5th Kure SNLP. I have found Nakatani Kenichi's name on both versions of the roll. Roll AWM 82 1/1/5 is particularly interesting as the SNLP is broken down by organisational structure. AWM 82 1/1/2 is alphabetic, organised according to the Iroha and is less 'useful', though still very cool.

    Fascinating read! I'll tell you Paul, everyone here contributed to your discovery quite nicely. I am looking at an auction with a Kobe Seiko marked helmet. This was the thread that helped me identify it! Neil H.
