Notes

1 Japanese names for this table are sourced from the Australian war crimes trial proceedings in series A471, usually from written statements or petitions signed by the accused. Some names are unknown (as no sample of their signature could be found) or are incomplete (as individual kanji could not be read). Although every effort has been made to be accurate, there may be errors in the Japanese name column.   

2 Although all suspected war criminals were meant to be allocated an Australian War Criminal Number (AWC No), this practice seemed to cease fairly early on. This is regrettable, as the suspects were meant to retain the same AWC number which, if known, is evidence that two individuals with the same name in different trials were the same person.

3 Serial numbers related to an individual's particular conviction and sentence in a trial. Hence the same individual can have more than one serial number if convicted in different trials. 

4 As the charges have been taken from the trial proceedings, the original spelling of place names has been retained, e.g. Sourabaya and Soerabaja.

5 Fukushima Masao was tried at Labuan ML18 and in the Rabaul 121 trials as a private; he was then tried as a civilian in the Rabaul R122 trial.

6 Ishii's rank was given in the trial as guard, implying he was Formosan. However, a document created while he was imprisoned at Rabaul gave his rank as lance corporal and his birthplace as Nagasaki.
