Sgt Lawrence W Beecroft
The six pages of Identification cover the period from April 1946 through April 1949 and are arranged in approximate chronological order.
The below documents are from Headquarters Eighth Army issued 3 February 1948 and concern the initial recoveries of the 55 men at Osaka.
A complete version appears within the pages for Case History 328.
Between April and June 1946 there was considerable confusion
properly identifying Sgt Lawrence Beecroft.
As a result of this discrepancy, you will encounter reports dated 1946 that appear in later years with the word 'Corrected' usually at the top of the report.
