Destroyer Squadron 1, 1927

Post by jerryasher » 20 Mar 2020 21:51

Is anybody able to round this out? The Squadron for the 1927 year was announced in December 1926 and included Destroyer Divisions, 25, 26, 27 and 28. Div 27 was Hishi, Sumire, Warabi and Ashi: Div 28 was Tade, Hasu, Yamogi and Wakatake. Have no information as to composition of Div's 25 and 26. Any sharing, names, deployment, dates, would be much appreciated. The cruiser Tatsuta was flag for the year. Thank you.
