Content: This item is a register for the period December 1942-January 1943, of skilled warrant officers and non-commissioned officers attached to the 20th Division. At the beginning of the register is a table explaining the code numbers attached to each regiment and sub-division within the 20th division. These numbers are listed against the name of each officer named in the register, which calculates the number of years of active service for each officer. The register also contains several lists of active service personnel attached to the Chôsen 2086 Unit, who apparently served in the 20th Division, as well as tables of weapons and ordnance assigned to the division, and instructions on how the register should be filled in and maintained by senior officers. At the back of the register are regulations concerning the handling and maintenance of weapons and ordnance. This item was probably captured at Finschhafen in April 1944.
