Dear Simon,

Thank you for that further information. I was able to reach the document in question, but was disappointed that it did not contain any details on the U-234's cargo, other than the estimate of 240 tons of cargo and where the cargo would have been stored.

Thank you also for clarifying and correcting previous commentary. I still strongly urge you to take your information on supposed flights to Japan to 12 O'Clock High! for peer review.

I have a document that says at least part of U-234's documents went to Freeman Field. Dated 29 Aug. 1945 and signed by J. M. Hayward, Colonel Air Corps, Chief, Technical Data Laboratory, Aircraft & Physical Requirements Subdivision, Engineering Division, with the notation TSEAL-6D, it states:

"1. Your attention is invited to the inclosed lists of German documents removed from submarine U-234 and forwarded to ATSC by Office of Chief of Naval operations, Washington, D.C. This material was shipped via freight to Freeman Field during the week of 6 August 1945.

2. Arrangements were completed with the Navy by representatives of Engineering Division, Headquarters ATSC, whereby the AAF would retain possession of the documents but would identify, list and index the material, and furnish copies of the list to the Technical Intelligence Center (Op-16-PT) for their file. Document identification should be sufficiently detailed to permit selection of specific items by interested agencies on the basis of the list alone."

Unfortunately, the list was not included with this cover sheet.
