You might want to check the following website for any information it might have. It is a listing of Japanese Warship and Merchant Ship losses during the war. It is in chronological order, and gives the approximate latitude and longitude of each loss. You will need to get the latitude and longitude of Hansa Bay, and then compare it to the list.
