Content: This item is the personal diary of a Japanese medical officer stationed in the Philippines. It was captured in San Nicolas in Luzon on 30 Jan 1945, and covers the period 1 Jan to 30 Jan. The name of the diarist is unknown, but the content identifies him as a medical officer. He relates troop movements of several units identified only as "S" and "N" units, but makes reference to the 6th Tank Regiment 3rd Company and the 26th Independent Infantry Regiment 1st Company. The diary is of interest because of the attached ATIS scanning sheets which give a summary translation of the contents, and identify it as an ATIS A document.
