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.

This came about as a result of his clothing having two different laundry marks, one for SSgt George E Wright and the other his. Some details are presented in the section titled

SSGT George E Wright

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.
