SAKAKI was a 37 year old from Yamaguchi. He was on board Nankai Maru and landed at Milne Bay with 400 men of the Hayashi Unit on 26 August 1942. He was captured near where he had landed, as he lost his unit due to a bad foot. During the interrogation, SAKAKI talked about the operation at Milne Bay, and also the daily meals which the soldiers were provided. The report includes an organisational chart of the Hayashi Unit. He was interrogated twice on 10 and 15 September 1942.
