Default Germany's last Mission to Japan.

Sorry Richard

I am thinking ten steps ahead of what I am saying and losing myself and my audience.

What I ment was that I-29 offloaded documents at Singapore and these were flown to Japan from Singapore.

I-29 was sunk between the Philippines and Taiwan with most of her secret cargo.

Much of U-234's top secret cargo, 240 tons of documents and war materials, was shipped to Washington and opened out of sight of the pressís cameras. A good deal was what might be expected, e.g., armor piercing antiaircraft shells. There were surprises, e.g., two Me-262 jet fighters. But, the biggest surprise of all came when 10 containers marked "Japanese Army" were opened. They contained 560 kg of uranium oxide.
