This seems to be convoy TAFU that departed Seito on 20 June 1945. Convoy TAFU consists of Daiun (Taiun) Maru No. 1, Konri Go (also know as Konri Maru, ex Chinese Kwen Lee), Shinneisho Go, Choko Maru and one unidentified ship. The convoy escorts are kaibokan CD-72 and Oki and one unidentified minesweeper.
Unconfirmed: The unidentified minesweeper is the auxiliary minesweeper Wa-20 (No. 20).
I have no information about Daiun (Taiun) Maru No. 2 being part of the convoy. If she was then she must be the until now unidentified ship.
