Content: This is an Allied Translator and Interpreter Section (ATIS) supplementary interrogation report for Leading Aircraftman SUE Shirô of the 705th Air Corps 5th Platoon 1st Section, who was captured near Wau on 23 April 1943. SUE, a 20 year old Leading Aircraftman from Tokyo, was captured by local people after his aircraft crashed into the jungle on 14 April. The rest of the crew were all killed. This supplementary report was created as SUE requested permission to amend some information he had provided in the initial interrogation. During the interrogation, SUE provided additional information on the unit organisation, personnel of his Air Corps, and the airfields on Marcus Island.
Other information
SUE's adopted name was YONEKURA Shirô.
