    Correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't the Japanese number their companies like the Germans? In any given regiment the breakdown is something like:

    1st Bn: 1,2,3,4 companies, plus a weapons company (or anti-tank, or whatever ... my memory fades and I don't want to look it up)

    2d Bn: 5,6,7,8 companies, plus;

    3d Bn: 9,10,11, 12 companies, plus.

    If the above premise is accurate, Nakatani should be in 5th Regiment, 1st Bn, 1st Co, 1st Plt.

    I knew the thread was pretty old. Russ was researching some stuff similar to this group. I ran across it by accident and thought he would like to see it so I brought it back to the top. Oh, also, I'm kinda in love with this group of bring backs as well lol..
