Content: The document provides information on quantities of ordinance in possession of the 5th Division as of 15 September 1945. The abstract says that the maintenance of weapons has been carried out properly, but that many of them are short of parts due to supply problems. Especially communication equipment, automobiles and boats have not been repaired properly due to parts' shortage and many are out of order. In addition, a proportion of ammunition does not work due to the high humidity and temperature.
