Abstract : This report covers a captured Japanese drafting or plotting set consisting of the following items: a set of drawing instruments with case, slide rule with case, plastic protractor, plastic straight edge or beam for compass, wood triangle and a combination deflection fan and coordinate scale. The set is provided with a canvas carrying case which was probably also used for carrying maps as it is considerably larger than is required for carrying the above-named items. The slide rule was made by Hemmi, Japan but the other items have no trade marks or manufacturers' nameplates. The equipment was captured in the South Pacific area. The date of capture is unknown.
