Notebooks belonging to Shoi Seto

  • F1568
  • File
  • 1943-1944.

Two volumes that appear to originally have belonged to Shoi Seto, possibly a Sub-Lieutenant in the Japanese Intelligence. The first volume is a notebook with 'Special book' on the cover with a pencil (and holder) on the right-hand side. Handwritten notes throughout the book in Japanese script and the English. Japanese script is most likely by Shoi Seto and the English is most likely by S. g. Smith of Armytage Street, Lota, Brisbane. Smith has written journal entries on several pages which includes his experience of being shot in 1944 when serving in Port Moresby. Reading from left to right, pages have been numbered 1 to 58; the numbering ends at 58 although the pages continue. From the end of the notebook there is more Japanese script written right to left. It contains songs and descriptions of British and American aircraft in World War Two.

The second volume, in Japanese script, to be read right to left, is a dictionary of aerial weapons.

Volumes are accompanied by explanatory notes.
