Caution: In the compilation by Wes Injerd, the men from Yokkaichi (formerly Osaka 17] were sent to Nagoya #5B. There were 4-5 camps all known by the POWS simply as "Toyama".
Lt. Col Stubbs clearly identifies this as being Camp No. 7 and he is listed on the camp rescue roster "Toyama." It is his list that identifes the deceased at Yokkaichi.
