The rest of the book consists of pages divided into columns for recording monthly payments, with spaces for the stamps of the payee and paymaster. These sections have been stamped by paymaster 2nd Lieutenant NAKANISHI Katsumi. The inscription in pencil inside the back cover says that ISHIBASHI died of malaria in Hollandia on 14 July 1944.
