.9. Our combined fleet destroyed the U. S. fleet commanded by Admiral HALSEY which was attacking in the sea east of LEYTE. Under the plan to facilitate the execution of the decisive battle for LEYTE, the 1st Fleet from the SAN BERNARDINO Straits, the 2nd Fleet from the "SURIGAO" Straits, and the 3rd Fleet (with carriers as a nucleus) from the sea east of LUZON Island, all advanced for the attack to the area east of LEYTE.
Our fleet eliminated persistent enemy air and submarine attacks before reaching the area east of LEYTE, arriving at the battle area on the morning of the 25th when it participated in the fierce battle.
At that time, the information reaching the Headquarters was considerably good and there was a report that the enemy fleet received a great damaging blow
