12923: 電信第23聯隊5中 電信第23聯隊第5中隊 23rd Signal Regiment 5th Company
My source says the same.
23rd was incorrect. 27th Signal Regiment 5th Company is correct as your book says.
Please see the detail at the bottom.

12994 ---- I have 119 Division Ordnance Duty Unit ← Yes it is correct.

12996 I have 119 Division ← Sorry, I have no evidence.

13378 I have only 3 Continental Signal HQ ← No, 大陸

軍部 Imperial General Headquarters Army Department.
So 大陸3通 大本営陸軍部第3通信隊 is Imperial General Headquarters Army Department 3rd Communications Unit.

I checked the 部隊略歴 Unit Brief History of 27th Signal Regiment and other sources.
According to these;
27th Signal Regiment was organized on 1 March 1944 and consisted of HQ, 6 companies, and one Materials Depot / 2,300 men.
(1) Dispatch the 5th Company to Okinawa,
Together with the 100th Independent Radio Platoon (Kyu12918), generated 12th Signal Unit (Kyu18830)
It was reorganized into 36th Signal Regiment (Kyu18830)
Normally, companies other than "independent" were not given a unit number.
But in this case, “12923” was given, because 5th Company had the same organization as the independent wire company. It is ① in your book.
So the order was;
12923 27th Signal Regiment 5th Company equivalent with independent wire company
12924 111th Independent Wire Company
12925 112th Independent Wire Company
12926 113th Independent Wire Company
12927 114th Independent Wire Company
(2) Composition was HQ, 1st - 4th / 6th Companies and Materials Depot / 2,050 men
(3) Dispatched to the Philippines / Departed Pusan on 21 August 1944 in 4 groups
(4) Gather in Manila on an unknown day
(5) Below units were dispatched to Leyte 35th Army / 858 men
Regiment Commanding Officer, part of HQ, 3rd / 4th Companies, one platoon of 1st Company, part of Materials Depot, and a large part of radio platoons
It is ② in your book. More correctly “35th Army”. So “12923 5 Company, 27th Signal Regiment” is incorrect.
(6) The rest, the below stayed in Luzon / 1.190 men
HQ, 1st (- 1 platoon) / 2nd / 6th Companies and part of Materials Depot
It is ③ in your book. So “12923 5 Company, 27th Signal Regiment” is also incorrect.
I'm sorry for being persistent, please check my AHF private message.
