    Seeking records of LCI(L) 1096 for August 15, 1945


      I am seeking information on a landing craft ship LCI(L) 1096 for August 15, 1945. It was anchored at Iheya Island, north of Okinawa. I am working on a book about the kamikaze. The last kamikaze struck at Iheya Island on the night of August 15, 1945. I am looking for corroborating evidence in the form of ship's logs, memoirs, photos etc.. To the best of my knowledge. there were three ships anchored at the island:  "SS Charles E. Smith" - a liberty ship, and two landing craft ships; "LCI(L) 818" and "LCI(L) 1096."    Thank you for your help.
