Content: This item is a photocopy of a paybook issued in December 1943 to a 1st Class Private URANISHI, and recording salary payments made to him for the months of December 1943 and January 1944. At the front of the paybook is a list of instructions for its care and use, as well as a list of ranks and special allowances calculating the rate of pay due to Private URANISHI. The rest of the book consists of pages divided into columns for recording monthly payments, with spaces for the signature of the payee and paymaster. Some of these sections have been filled in and stamped by a paymaster MAENO. This item was captured at Hansa Bay, probably in 1944.
