Content: This item is a top secret army list for the month of March 1943, of warrant officers and non-commissioned officers from the 238th Infantry Regiment. Its main purpose is to determine the seniority of each officer, by rank and length of active service. Officer names are listed in tables, along with the officer's place and date of birth, and a record of the number of years spent in each rank. The list has been stamped throughout by an officer MAGA Satoshi, and there are also fragments of loose paper folded into the list book, which appear to be explanatory supplements. One such fragment decodes symbols used in the lists (a flag mark for division headquarters; a Star of David for an infantry division headquarters, etc.). This item was captured at Finschhafen in April 1944.
