Please send your answer to my e-mail as well as to this site to help others.
Thank you for your help.
A very interesting unit. I have checked all the divisions that fought in New Guinea and in Luzon and none of them had the 214 Signals Depot as part of their command structure. This was a very specialized unit that reported directly to high command thus by passing normal military channels so not part of any local division. Basically they worked for General MacArthur directly as a non attached unit. There is very little data on the 214 other than they had special training in the US. They most likely were used to spy on Japanese radio; then interpret and analysis this information.
I wish I had more information but please check out the link.
