Content: This item is a copy of a postal savings book issued to KOGURE Takeo. The front cover contains columns for account number, the agency responsible for the original register, remarks, address and name. The back cover shows a list of instructions. The savings book was issued by the Shimonoseki branch of the Postal Savings Department, but the name of unit written in the address space is illegible. Although KOGURE's rank is not written, it is known that he was a 1st class private by another record in this series (AWM 82 1/2/500232). The rest of the savings book consists of columns for transaction records. The transactions occurred between 20 December 1940 and on 2 June 1943. This item was captured at Lae on 1 November 1943.
