Content: This is an Allied Translator and Interpreter Section (ATIS) interrogation report for 2nd Class Private ONO Toshio of the 41st Infantry Regiment (Yazawa Unit), who was captured in Giruwa on 24 January 1943. ONO, a 30 year old 2nd Class Private from Kochi, was sick from malaria and beri-beri when he was captured by US troops. He had attempted to join the evacuation, but was too weak to wade out into the sea to be picked up by boat. During the interrogation, ONO provided detailed information on the farming situation in Japan, as he had been trained as an agricultural advisor.
