Re: More IJN Officer Info

Post by ijnfleetadmiral » 08 Aug 2020 02:18

Awesome...thanks! Questions:

1) Did you find any info on Oshima Defense Corps, Keelung Defense Corps, or Takao Defense Corps?

Soya Defense Corps
2) For Mine Officers, I have HAGIWARA Manabu (60) as appointed CO of SHIGURE on 30 November 1944. That being said, could the following be correct?
LCDR HAGIWARA Manabu (60) - 20 March 1944 - 30 November 1944
VACANT - 30 November 1944 - 30 April 1945

3) Is the following correct for Naimuchos?
VACANT - 10 March 1944 - 15 March 1944

Onagawa Defense Corps
4) For Executive Officers, I have SHIMADA Kiyozo (62) as KIA on 10 May 1944 as CO of KARUKAYA.

Shimonoseki Defense Corps
5) For Commanding Officers, I do not have an officer named OHARA Kai 小簱魏 in my Eta Jima Class listings.

6) For Mine Officers, I have KONAKA Yukinari as a Surgeon Officer, not a Line or Reserve Officer.

Here are some more Defense Corps...TIA for any help in filling in blanks!

He was an Etajima Graduate Class 33.
I would like to correct his Furigana OBATA Tadashi.

I have misread the Kanji for 萩原学. For him, OGIWARA Manabu 荻原学 is correct. He was 63rd Etajima Gladuate.
萩 and 荻 are sometimes mistaken.
So,
OGIWARA Manabu 荻原学 (63)
