Content: This folder contains materials from November 1941 to May 1943, consisting primarily of service records for soldiers from the 41st Division 238th Infantry Regiment. There are also multiple copies of a service record & certificate of illness for a soldier in the 41st Division 238th Infantry Regiment Infantry Gun Detachment, and a booklet that appears to be a summary of service records for soldiers. In addition, there is a separate "verification certificate" recording the illness of a Private 1st Class KISHI in the Beijing Army Hospital. These items were captured at Finschhafen in April 1944.
