Content: This item is a medical register recording the admission and progress of patients in an unnamed field hospital during the period between April and June (inclusive), 1943. It is divided into weekly sections; each section calculates the total number of admissions and discharges/deaths for that week, and records the particulars of new admissions, including the patient's name, rank, the nature of his complaint, the date of admission and any notes on treatment and progress. Often, these notes take the form of standardised instructions in rubber stamp, such as "prolonged bed rest," "permission to be relieved of duty," "treatment," and so on. Each weekly section is also rubber stamped with the personal stamps of the medical staff on duty for that week. Although there are some variations, regular staff included medical officers NOMURA and SEITA, Warrant Officer MATSUYAMA, Company Commander AOYAMA, Staff Sergeant TERADO and officer TANISHIGE. There is no ATIS information available concerning the date or location of capture for this document, but it is related to item no. 1/2/500054 which was captured at Finschhafen in April 1944.
