According to wartime dailies, (Engineer) Staff Officer was often described as (Maintenance) Staff Officer.

It was my mistake.
I searched and contacted an acquaintance familiar with naval personnel. However, the identity of Hiroshi Sato could not be clarified. It is possible that the surname changed after graduating from Naval Academy.
The below is hid charrier.

I think you listed the Chief of Staff of 1st Fleet. Certainly, when the 1st Fleet Commander also served as the 1st Squadron Commander, the 1st Fleet Staff was also served as the 1st Squadron Staff. Again, the first squadron did not have the post of the chief of staff, only (Head). Therefore, the staff of the 1st Fleet who also served as them was not the Chief of Staff, but (Head). In the Resignation, the staff was simply described as “the staff”, whatever their duties. Therefore, it is generally difficult to know who the fleet's (Head) from the resignation. (Fleet Staff were much more than Squadron Staff.) I once said that the rank of the Fleet Commander was VADM. In other words, when the Squadron Commander was RADM, the Squadron had its own Headquarters. In this case, since the number of staff was small, it is possible to estimate their role:

I guess that the engineer officers attached to 1st Fleet HQ were concurrently serving as 1st Squadron Engineer Officers. Unfortunately it is difficult to find such officers.

1) Is this correct for 2nd Squadron Staff Officers?
Head Staff Officer
VACANT - 18 August 1914 - 1 February 1915
(Head) Staff Officer must have been appointed. However, because of World War I, most personnel from 1914 to 1915 were not listed in Official Gazette.
