Content: This item is a carbon copy of a report on treatment of prisoners of war who were killed in the Miri area, Borneo, on way to Kuching on 9 June 1945. This report was written on 1 October 1945 by Staff Sergeant SUGINO who was the chief officer supervising the transport of the first group of prisoners of war in prisoner-of-war camps in Borneo, and it was submitted to the commander of the Japanese garrison in the Miri area. The report accompanies two carbon copies of lists of prisoners of war. It also accompanies a report written in pencil on 11 October 1945 by Lieutenant Colonel KANAZAWA to Colonel AIKYÔ regarding the concentration of Japanese soldiers and civilians to the Miri area, construction of accommodation for these people, concentration of arms in designated areas, and documents to be handed over to the Australian authorities.
