Re: More IJN Officer Info

Awesome...thanks! Questions:

1) Is this correct for 4th Squadron Commanders?
VACANT - 13 April 1917 - 1 December 1919

2) Is this correct for 4th Squadron Chief Engineers?
VACANT - 12 December 1916 - 16 March 1917
VACANT - 20 November 1921 - 1 December 1921

2) Is this correct for 4th Squadron Staff Gunnery Officers?
VACANT - 10 May 1920 - 1 December 1920
VACANT - 10 August 1921 - 1 December 1921

I know for a fact that both KONDO Nobutake and KURITA Takeo were CinC 2nd Fleet and flew their flags from the same flagship as that of 4th Squadron, so yes, I would say that they had additional duty as Commander 4th Squadron during their tenure as CinC 2nd Fleet. I'm guessing that's why there's no info available for the posts of Chief Engineer, Staff Gunnery, Staff Engineering, and Staff Communications Officers after certain dates, due to the fact that these posts were held by 2nd Fleet Staff Officers?
