|Content:||This is an Allied Translator and Interpreter Section (ATIS) interrogation report for 1st Class Private CHIYA Haruyoshi of the 144th Infantry Regiment 1st Battalion Artillery Platoon, who was captured near Sambo on 26 November 1942. CHIYA, a 37 year old from Kochi, was abandoned by his unit due to leg trouble. CHIYA provided information on his unit's movement up to Wamai where they received orders to retreat. His platoon carried one gun to Wamai, but had to abandon it during the retreat. He provided information about artillery guns, transportation and training. CHIYA also stated that writing diaries and letters was prohibited while they were in New Guinea, and that writing material was confiscated before their departure from Rabaul. However, many soldiers secretly kept diaries.|
