Hello everyone,
I've been researching the wreck of the Yamato recently and came across a bunch of images of artefacts and I can't find any English information on them.
Can anyone give me a translation- some are hard to read, but any guesses are much appreciated.
Thank you!

The are all just names of the various parts on the ship. You'll have to provide cleaner pictures for exact translations: but I can see some words like "Electric stand pedestal", "...capstan", "...mast"
