According to the TROM's, there were 19 Hospital ships, but the TROM's don't cover them all.

Is there a list some place of all there names?

I cant seam to find a reference that indicates how many bed's they had or what their capacity for treating patients was?

Were all 19 Available for service as Hospital ships at Wars start?

Thanks for the very interesting Hilawa Maru chart.

According to the Tokusetsukansen Database, there were 7 Navy Hospital ships excluding 菊丸 Kikumaru which was decommissioned just before the end of the war.

And there were 20 Army Hospital Ships. There were 19 ships, excluding 大栄丸 Daiei Maru, which was being converted into a hospital ship at the end of the war. Was there something misunderstanding here?
