Thanks for the correction.
I have referred to the source below.
The original source is 日本海軍史.
According to them, CAPT AITOKU Ichiro was the chief of 11th Section as an additional post between 15 November 1940 and 10 January 1943.

Oh, he was the chief of 11th Section of 大本営通信部 Communications Department / Imperial General Headquarters between 15 November 1940 and 10 January 1943. I have misread my source.

Gen Tojo visited the Philippines in May 1943. The top naval officer at this time was VADM Takasu shiro 高須四郎, Southwest Fleet Commanding Officer.

Awesome...thanks! Questions:

1) So this could be correct for SAWAKAZE Torpedo Officers due to her being assigned as a Tateyama Air Group training ship?
VACANT - 1 November 1934 - 10 September 1942

2) Is this correct for SAWAKAZE Chief Engineers?
VACANT - 10 January 1922 - 1 December 1922

3) For MINEKAZE Chief Engineers, what class was SHIOYA Tsuzuma (15 August 1924 - 20 August 1924)?

4) For YAKAZE Gunnery Officers, could the following be correct?
VACANT - 10 November 1921 - 20 April 1922
LT UCHIDA Ichitaro (40) - 20 April 1922 - 01 December 1922 (UCHIDA relieved as YAKUMO Secondary Gunnery Officer on 20 April 1922)

5) Could the following be correct for YAKAZE Chief Engineers?
VACANT - 10 November 1923 - 1 December 1924
(E) LT ABIKO Yoshifumi (Eng. 21) - 1 December 1924 - 6 April 1925

6) I'm guessing there is no info available for YAKAZE Chief Engineers from 15 November 1935 - 20 July 1942?

7) Were you able to find anything for the blanks in OKIKAZE Chief Engineers? The list skips them.

8) For HAKAZE Chief Engineers, what class was SATO Hasukichi (25 May 1922 - 10 November 1922)?

9) Were you able to find anything for the blanks in SHIOKAZE Navigators? The list skips them.

10) Could the following be correct for SHIOKAZE Chief Engineers?
(E) LCDR SUZUKI Yoshio (Eng. 18) - 13 July 1922 - 25 May 1923
(E) LT KOBAYASHI Hisataka (Eng. 20) - 25 May 1923 - 1 December 1923
(E) LT ARAI Kozo (Eng. 21) - 1 December 1923 - 18 January 1924
(E) LT ABIKO Yoshifumi (Eng. 21) - 18 January 1924 - 1 December 1924

11) For AKIKAZE Torpedo Officers, what Eta Jima Class was YAMASHITA Muneharu (25 May 1922 - 1 November 1922)?

12) Could the following be correct for AKIKAZE Gunnery Officers?
VACANT - 1 February 1937 - 1 December 1938
