Content: This is an Allied Translator and Interpreter Section (ATIS) interrogation report for Superior Private YAMAKAMI Yasunori of the 55th Division 1st Field Hospital, who was captured in Gona on 31 January 1943. YAMAKAMI, a 25 year old Superior Private from Kagawa, was weak from exhaustion and lack of food when he was captured by U. S. troops. His unit was attached to the South Seas Force during the Port Moresby attack on Kokoda Track. During the interrogation, YAMAKAMI provided information on the organisation of medical units, medical treatment, and newly developed submarine aircraft that YAMAKAMI saw in Yokosuka in 1938–1939, as well as morale in Japan.
