I would like to correct. 51st Training Squadron was fake. 51st Squadron is correct.
But 呉練習戦隊 Kure Training Squadfron is true.
Actually Staff Gunnery Officer and Staff Communications Officer are not correct. In Naval Transfer and Promotion Lists, only Staff Officer is specified. (Head), (Gunnery), (Communications) and (Engineer) are used informally in the HQ. So (Torpedo) instead of (Gunnery) was used in some Torpedo Squadrons. I have confirmed these with Wartime Dialies. Who was (Head) and who was (Gunnery Officer) etc can be determined with certainty from graduation class and work history, etc. As you have guessed, typically: (Head) / CDR, (Gunnery) / LCDR, (Communications) / LT and (Engineer) / Eng. So in the case of same rank and same class, the situation is embarrassed.

With reference to the War Diary of the 103rd Squadron, I conclude 101st - 105th Squadrons had only the post of (Head) and (Engineer).
