Complete List of Submarine Divisions

Post by fontessa » 17 Jan 2022 12:25

I would like to upload the list of Submarine Divisions.
(1) The source is TROM prepared by 渡辺博史 Watanabe Hiroshi.
(2) A few years ago, files larger than a certain limit (8,000 words?) were not able to be uploaded in one action, but this limit has been relaxed and large files such as the following can now be uploaded in one action.
(3) The 24th and 33rd data I uploaded earlier was revised.
(4) The rules for assigning division numbers were as follows.
- Divisions under the jurisdiction of Yokosuka Naval Distinct: 1 - 10
- Divisions under the jurisdiction of Kure Naval Distinct: 11 - 20
- Divisions under the jurisdiction of Sasebo Naval Distinct: 21 - 30
The above rule was also applied to Destroyer Divisions with;
- Divisions under the jurisdiction of Maizuru Naval Distinct: 31 - 40
(5-1) IJN submarine history starred with 潜水艇 Submersible SM-〇〇 and 潜水艇隊 Submersible Division SubMDiv〇〇 on 13 January 1905.
(5-2) These ware renamed to 潜水艦 Submarine S-〇〇 and 潜水隊 Submarine Division SubDiv〇〇 on 1 April 1919.
(5-3) A part of 潜水艦 Submarine was renamed to 波号潜水艦 HA-〇〇 on 1 November 1922.
(5-4) Rest of 潜水艦 Submarine was renamed to 呂号潜水艦 RO-〇〇 on 1 December 1926.
(5-5) 伊号潜水艦 I-〇〇 was named so from the first.
(6) The abbreviations are as follows:
- ADD: added division
- LIA: division Lost in Action
- ← 〇〇: division from 〇〇
- → 〇〇: division to 〇〇
- Kure N.D.: Kure Naval Distinct
- Kure D.S.: Kere Defense Squadron
- Reserve4: 4th Rank Reserve

Some info on the Temporary Submarine Boat Division:
THE O-CLASS SUBMARINES OF THE IJN
At the end of world war1the IJN received seven German U-Boats as war-reparations, namely U-125; U-46; U-55; UC-90; UC-99; UB-125 and UB-143. They were handed over on the 20/11/1918 (UB-125); 22/11/1918 UC-99); 26/11/1918 (U-125,U-46,U-55,UB-143); 01/12/1918 (UC-90);
All seven were commissioned into the IJN on the 19/12/1918 at Harwich, Great Britain and were formed into the Temporary Submarine Boat Division. (臨時特別潜水艇隊)
They left Harwich in two sections: O-1; O-5; O-6 on the 18/02/1919 and O-2; O-3; O-4; O-7; on the 06/03/1919 and arrived in Malta in late March 1919, escorted by the Cruiser Izumo and the Submarine Tender Kanto. They were towed by the Destroyers of Des. Div.22 (ex Des. Div.10) and Des. Div.23(ex Des. Div.11).
In Malta the U-Boats were serviced by the Submarine Tender Kanto in preparation for the voyage to Japan.
The O-1, O-3, O-5, O-7 left for Japan on the 06/04/1919 escorted by the cruiser Nisshin and towed by the Destroyers Katsura; Kaede; Ume; Kusunoki (DD 22). The O-2, O-4, O-6 followed on the 08/04/1919, escorted by the Tender Kanto and towed by the Destroyers Sakaki; Matsu; Sugi; (DD 23). They all sailed via the Suez Canal and joined up together on the 31/05/1919 in Singapore. They arrived in Yokosuka on the 18th of June 1919 after an incident- free voyage.
In Japan they went on an exhibition tour to the major ports. The Japanese Navy thoroughly investigated the U-Boats before they were partially dismantled and eventually disposed. (Click on the links to bring up the details of the individual Submarines)
U-125 served as a blueprint for the KRS class (I-121 (ex I-21) to I-124 ex I-24) mine laying submarines.
For details of the O-Class see my website: http://www.ijnsubsite.info/
