AWM Caption: Lieutenant Colonel (Lt Col) Yujiro Yutani, Commanding Officer of the Kempeitai (Japanese secret police) on Timor, standing at attention behind a barbed wire fence at the prisoner of war (POW) compound. Lt Col Yutani was one of twenty two Japanese who were tried in Darwin in March and April 1946 for war crimes against allied POWs. Lt Col Yutani was accused of the ill treatment of a British POW and an Australian POW in April-May 1943, as well as the murders of Australian POW, TX3282 Corporal (Cpl) J H Armstrong, 2/40 Battalion, and British POW, Gunner (Gnr) Martin, 79 Light Anti Aircraft Battery, who were executed on Lt Col Yutani's order at Airnona, Timor, on or about 12 June 1943. He was found guilty on all charges and on 29 April 1946 was sentenced to death by shooting for the murders of Cpl Armstrong and Gnr Martin. Lt Col Yutani unsuccessfully appealed against the sentence on the grounds that "the capital punishment is unreasonable and excessive" and that the order to execute Cpl Armstrong and Gnr Martin "was issued as a lawful one and obeyed by me as an operational order". The sentence was carried out on 1 August 1946 at Rabaul. Of the twenty two Japanese tried in Darwin, nine others were found guilty of war crimes and sentenced to imprisonment with hard labour, with the maximum sentence being ten years.
