Do these records still exist?

    I am looking for information on the movements of Lt Col. Toyosaku Shimada (March 31, 1912-July 11, 1988) during the Malaya campaign. At that time he was the 4th Company Commander, 6th Tank and held the rank of Major.

    Does a unit history survive? Can anyone tell me exactly where the unit was just before Singapore Island was invaded by the Japanese. Are there any books about his wartime years that were published in English? I am aware that he wrote a number of books himself but I believe none of them have been translated.
