Here the document which should be very interesting. It is the report about
Results of inspection of monuments of military history on islands.
The Japanese defensive works and military are in detail described
Technics{Technical equipment} which there have remained.
Artillery, tanks, planes and tractors.
The report is made in 1992. Language Russian.


Памятники военной истории на Севереных Курилах
(По результатам обследования островов Шумшу и Парамушир в 1991 - 1992 гг.)

Whether is still what or the Japanese photos of island Shumshu? Military constructions, soldiers, technics{technical equipment}? It very much interests.

Good evening!

The Russian text below the picture says that the ships are Japanese ones. But as for me, they really look like American LCIs that were lend-leased to the USSR.

Best regards, Aleks

Good evening, FreyFox!

Yes, you are right. But the Russian source on Lend-Lease ships (the work of late historian S.S. Berezhnoi) gives a little bit different figure of LCIs lost at Shimushu. They were: DS-1 (from Russian Desantnoe Sudno or Landing Ship) ex-LCI-672, DS-5 ex-LCI-525, DS-9 ex-LCI-554, DS-43 ex-LCI-943 and DS-47 ex-LCI-671, so five in total.

Best regards, Aleks
