1) For NACHI, I do not have an officer named ASANO Shinji as part of Paymaster Academy 12. I have 34 graduates of that class, and he is not one of them.
Oh, He was 委託学生 entrusted students to general universities and was commissioned in 1912.
So ASANO Shinji 浅野親次 (Pay.1912)

Do primary sources, say on JACAR or the NDL exist for officers appointments to the 1st Expeditionary Fleet (第一遣外艦隊) from 1927 to 1932? I see the Jirei Koho on JACAR does not cover these years. If there are no primary sources, are there any trusted Japanese books I can rely on? Thank you.

Yes, with 官報 Official Gazette, we can see IJA and IJN officers personnel before Marco Polo Bridge Incident. (Both IJA and IJN officers personnel in war time were not announced in 官報.) As for 1st Expeditionary Fleet personnel on 1 December 1927 were announced with 官報 dated 2 December 1927.
See コマ Frames 7 - :
https://dl.ndl.go.jp/info:ndljp/pid/2956739

Note according to Japanese WIKI, 1st Expeditionary Fleet was renamed from 遣支艦隊 Chine Expeditionary Fleet on 9 August 1919.

Do primary sources, say on JACAR or the NDL exist for officers appointments to the 1st Expeditionary Fleet (第一遣外艦隊) from 1927 to 1932?
Yes, with 官報 Official Gazette, we can see IJA and IJN officers personnel before Marco Polo Bridge Incident. (Both IJA and IJN officers personnel in war time were not announced in 官報.) As for 1st Expeditionary Fleet personnel on 1 December 1927 were announced with 官報 dated 2 December 1927.
See コマ Frames 7 - :
https://dl.ndl.go.jp/info:ndljp/pid/2956739

Note according to Japanese WIKI, 1st Expeditionary Fleet was renamed from 遣支艦隊 Chine Expeditionary Fleet on 9 August 1919.

Thank you very much for your quick response fontessa, it was very helpful. Now I am going to attempt to track the officers as low as platoon level in the Shanghai Naval Landing Force. I know their title is simply 第一遣外艦隊司令部附 "attached to 1st Expeditionary Fleet HQ", but with digging into some of the unit's logs on JACAR and as well as unpublished materials I believe can achieve something.

For now I will present this information based off the Kanpo and a labelled group photograph I obtained from a veteran of the unit:

Shanghai Naval Landing Force 1929-1931

Brigade Commander:
CAPTAIN SHIBAYAMA MASAKI (35) 柴山昌生 1929/~1931/12/1 https://dl.ndl.go.jp/info:ndljp/pid/2957946/10

COMMANDER SAMEJIMA TOMOSHIGE (37) 鮫島具重 1931/11/2~??? https://dl.ndl.go.jp/info:ndljp/pid/2957923/5 (wikipedia says Samejima became brigade commander on Dec 1 which makes sense based off Shibayama's departure on the same date)

Brigade Adjutant:
LIEUTENANT YASUDA YOSHITATSU (46) 安田義達 1930/8/10~??? https://dl.ndl.go.jp/info:ndljp/pid/2957552/3

1st Battalion Commander:
LIEUTENANT TSUZUKI TEIICHI (46) 続木禎弌 1929/11/15~1931/5/15 https://dl.ndl.go.jp/info:ndljp/pid/2957333/4

LIEUTENANT-COMMANDER SUZUKI MITSUNOBU (46) 鈴木光信少佐 1931/5/15~??? https://dl.ndl.go.jp/info:ndljp/pid/2957779/5

I am happy to provide further updates with progress in my research if anyone is interested.

Hello adachi

I found 2 officers with 官報 dated 2 December 1927. They were attached to 1st Expeditionary Fleet personnel HQ and their additional post was 参謀 Staff Officer. The 2nd officer LT Takeuchi Kaoru 竹内馨 was listed in ijnfleetadmiral’s post #1930.
I guess they were Staff Officer of Shanghai Naval Landing Force. In order to wear the staff aiguillette, they had to have been appointed as Staff Officer in some way.
