Content: This is an Allied Translator and Interpreter Section (ATIS) translation of a Japanese publication captured at Hollandia on 30 April 1944 during the Allied attacks on Japanese positions in northern Dutch New Guinea, which were intended to isolate the 18th Army at Wewak. This item is a collection of monthly duty reports issued by the 14th Army Field Freight Depot in January 1944. It contains reports on guerilla activities in the Philippines and their effect on Japanese supply, the reorganisation of 2nd Area Army and 14th Area Army Field Freight Depot, notes on officials making inspections, condition of supplies and lack of transportation, production figures of Japanese army factories, research on self-sufficiency and statistics on purchases, production and supply to other forces. The reports also mention fuel and food shortages, absenteeism among Filipino labourers, and the strain on supply caused by the increasing numbers of troops moving to strengthen the South Pacific theatre.
