Sasebo Naval District Confidential No.7-49

This causes difficulty in terms of hygiene, as we employ personnel as necessary for building work in this District. Therefore, your prefecture is hereby requested to issue strict notification to those going out to hunt in future, to the effect that they should not leave [carcasses] discarded on the shore but should take them far out to sea in the direction indicated on the attached map and discard them there. Moreover, those currently undertaking operations should be notified of the above as a matter of urgency.
