I-3's TROM states that her Gunnery Officer ENS TAKEICHI survived the sinking and managed to reach Guadalcanal along with three enlisted men. What was TAKEICHI's full name? Was he an Academy graduate or a Reserve Officer? The only Academy graduate I have that could possibly be him would be TAKEICHI Yoshinobu 竹一能宣 (70), who was later KIA in 1943 as a Crewman aboard I-20, but according to The Naval Database this officer was a Crewman aboard I-19 at the time of I-3's loss.

TIA for any info on his name!
I answered once, but it was inappropriate, so I deleted it and answered here again.

He was TAKEICHI Yoshinori? 竹一能宣 (70). But The Naval Database was partly wrong. Related Kaigun Jirei Koho is shown at the bottom. From there, I surmise:
(1) He survived the sinking of the I-3 and was rescued by Army units at Guadalcanal.
(2) Fortunately, he could return from Guadalcanal in early February.
(3) As a personnel arrangement, he was attached to 6th Fleet HQ retroactively to January 20 on February 10.
(4) He was assigned to the I-20 Crew on the same day.

Additional Info
IJN Submarines didn't have the post of Gunnery Officer. He was assigned to a Crew 乗組 (for Gunnery and Communications Officers Duty).

I have battalion commanders for all Chinjufu SNLFs, with very few exceptions they should be listed in Jirei Koho as "shirei" (commander). There are some cases such as the Kure 1st SNLF in 1937 where an attache serves the battalion commander role instead. If a Lt. or Lt.Cdr. is posted to a Chinjufu SNLF as an attache, you may need to try to locate a unit history and see if they were acting as battalion commander.

Company commander is a difficult matter. They are usually posted to the unit as "buntaichai" but it was a position increasingly staffed by special duty officers, which makes it quite hard if not impossible to determine them for units from 1937-1941 and non-Yokosuka SNLFs afterwards.

I have been looking for records and books for individual units and piecing together info that way.

For Shanghai SNLF it is very difficult because there is no distinction between battalion commander and company commander in the Jirei Koho. Other supporting documents are vital to determine the roles. I have a complete list of battalion commanders in the Shanghai SNLF for 1937 and have almost completed the list of company commanders with the exception of the Independent SNLF Companies which appear to all have been staffed by special duty officers.

Anyways I can start posting the data I have, just let me know if you're interested and what year/theatre/naval district you'd like me to start with.

Explanation of acronyms:
Adv.Gun # = Advanced Gunnery Course followed by class no.
Spec.Gun # = Specialty Gunnery Course "
Exp.Gun # = Expert Gunnery Course (sometimes includes being dispatched to the IJA Infantry School for training) "

EM Adv.Gun # = Advanced Gunnery Course for enlisted men followed by class no.
Em Spec.Gun # = Specialty Gunnery Course for enlisted men "

Generally we can determine the quality of units with how many troops hold advanced gunnery training completion. Out of this list only one battalion commander, Tsuzuki from the Kure 4th SNLF, has no advanced gunnery but this was supplemented by roughly a year of service in the Shanghai Rikusentai. Units such as the Kure 1st SNLF (II) with an expert gunnery commander and many of its cadre holding advanced gunnery were the cream of the crop in terms of SNLF units.

Awesome! Looking forward to seeing more! Do you even have lists of who attended the Advanced, Specialty and Expert Gunnery & Torpedo Classes?! Most impressive...I didn't even know those were available!

I think the Kanpo (Bulletin) has graduate lists for both officers and enlisted men up until 1937. There's still some partial graduate lists afterwards as well. Technically there's many copies of the unarchived post-37 graduate lists floating around out there as well. I have a few I need to digitize.

Is there a website to view these, by any chance?

They are all viewable in Japanese on the National Diet Library Digital Archives in the document called "官報". For example here is the link to the 11th Expert Gunnery and 29th Advanced Gunnery Classes which graduated in November 1930: https://dl.ndl.go.jp/pid/2957654/1/6
I would like to type them all out into charts but haven't taken the plunge yet. In theory you can search for graduates and find them in the class lists, but some names just don't show up as even the NDL's great OCR technology does still have some limitations.

Unfortunately for me, they're PDF scans, which means copy-paste-into-Google-translate won't work. :lol: Ah, well...thanks all the same!
