If anyone knows people living in Taiwan, please refer us to them. Problem with this is that the info is probably available in Taiwan. We cannot believe that this history isn't written down somewhere. Problem is that this info is most obviously only available in Taiwanese and with us searching in the Anglo speaking world, we are probably not able to find the info on the internet or the references to the books that might cover these histories.

So any help with that is appreciated.

air.mnd.gov.tw also has unit history by tfw. The mandarin version seems to cover more units than the English version.

We know these sites for a long time already, but they only hold a limited amount of historical data.
