Content: This is an Allied Translator and Interpreter Section (ATIS) interrogation report for Superior Private TSUNO Keishin of the 144th Infantry Regiment 2nd Battalion Artillery (Kawamura) Platoon, who was captured in Oivi on 9 November 1942. TSUNO, a 27 year old from Fukuoka, was an ammunition carrier. TSUNO was previously interrogated on 3 December 1942. TSUNO commented on the friendly atmosphere in the Australian Army, which suprised him. TSUNO said that Allied priosoners of war who had been held in Rabaul were transported to Zentsuji. He also provided additional information on working conditions in the Japanese Army in terms of pay, pension and compensation. Because he had become a priosoner of war, he did not think he could return to his home town.
