The National Diet Library has undergone a big update and now the kanpo is searchable. This should make researching earlier officer records much easier!

I am a moderator for an IJN group on Facebook. Someone just joined who has informed me that his father's uncle was an IJN officer who served on HARUNA during the war. His family name was TAKIMOTO, and I have managed to find the following officers with that name in my records:

TAKIMOTO Takeshi 滝本隆
Naval Academy 68 (250/288)

TAKIMOTO Hiroshi 滝本浩
Naval Academy 73 (??/902)

TAKIMOTO Osamu 滝本治
Naval Academy 73 (170/902)

TAKIMOTO Yoshimasa 滝本義雅
Paymaster Academy 15 (10/12)

TAKIMOTO Noboru 瀧本昇
Surgeon Commissioned 1939

Is there any way of finding out if one of these officers served on HARUNA? TIA for any help with this.

EDIT: Found out who he is; he was TAKIMOTO Takeshi, who survived HATSUTAKA's sinking.
