Content: This item is the nominal roll for the 2nd Coy of the Yokosuka 5th Special Naval Landing Party which landed in Milne Bay in 1942. The company consisted of three platoons and a machine gun platoon. The roll lists position, rank, qualifications and name for the 230 members of the company. A handwritten English memo attached to the document, presumably from ATIS, indicates that the roll is from the "No 2 Yoshioka Coy of Yasuda Unit of Yoksuka No 5 SLP". Although the commander of the Coy is not listed on this document, reference to the roll in another format (see related records above) indicates that he was Lt YOSHIOKA Fumiharu.
