Coming very late to this one, can I ask Lt Amuro, if he is still around, for some help? Does he have any further information on the Japanese forces in the Boxer Uprising, please? I am writing a book on the armies of the conflict, and the Russian, Chinese and Japanese have proved the most difficult to get primary source material on, because of the language problem.
I have a chapter on the Japanese virtually complete, but some of the organisational details are contradictory, and it would be very helpful to have an expert eye cast over them. Any help will, of course, be fully acknowledged in the book.
