Hello Fontessa
340 野砲128聯隊 [英武] 128th Field 英武 Eibu was the Unit Code Letter of 128th Division.
Number 340 seems to be incomplete, and I am unable to translate the last two Kanji(聯隊) before "Eibu". Can you give me more information on this one?

Thank you

Oh. 聯隊 means Regiment. 野砲128聯隊 was 128th Field Artillery Regiment.

The Kanji you mentioned may be 連. Strictly speaking, it's an incorrect 聯 notation. But it's commonly used - like 合艦隊 which is correctly 合艦隊 Combined Fleet.

Can you show "03.pdf (ww2db.com)"? I have never seen it.
Anywhere JM-116 was the official document prepared by the 2nd Demobilization Bureau. So I think we have to respect it.

A Decisive Air Force Map (arcgis.com);
I didn't know much about naval aviation (especially deployment) at the end of the war. Extremely interesting. Thank you very much.
