The four camps mentioned include the Akane, Nishibôekiten, Kagamihara and Tauril Camps, which were headed by Captains SAKAMOTO, IMAMURA, SUWABE and ASAYAMA respectively. The 17th Division and the 39th Independent Mixed Brigade were the main components of these camps. Each camp consisted of approx. 10,000 servicemen. Attachments include an organisational chart of a hospital for camp residents, information on the number of hospital rooms in tabular form and an organisational chart of a standard camp. There was an organisation which was responsible for the formation of camps, and this item specifies duties assigned to each officer temporarily attached to the organisation.
