Content: This item is a photocopy of a military pocket book that belonged to a Superior Private HIGASA, from the 54th Infantry Regiment of the 17th Division.

There is also a printed table with spaces for recording salary payments, but these have been left blank. This item was captured at Suluan in July 1944.
