Admiral Morin on his way back from the first party given by 307 Battalion, at which human flesh was served and eaten, discussed the matter with Major Matoba, and asked him whether he would be so kind as to bring along a little liver next time an eneny pilot was executed by 308 Battalion, which was under Matoba's command. It was, doubtless, pursuant to the admiral's request that Cadet Sakabe, in the Battalion Order quoted above, had been instructed to remove the liver from Flight-Lieutenant Hall's body after execution, although in fact it was removed by a medical officer named Teraki, as Sakabe was not sufficiently experienced.

In another diary, kept by a member of the Fujita Force, the following entries appeared:
13 Feb. For security reasons, all inhabitants of the town were killed and all their possessions confiscated.
17 Feb. Because 90% of the Filipinos are not pro-Japanese, Army Headquarters issued orders on 10th inst. to punish them. In various sectors we have killed several thousands (including young, old, men and women and Chinese). Their homes have been burned and their valuables confiscated.
