Hi,

Does anyone have information on the Thai forces or the commander that occupied some northern Malaya states which the Japanese gave to Japan until the end of the war?

Regards

And from another post I made a while back on this forum:
The army's 18th Mixed (there was a battalion of marines) Brigade was the main occupational force; the last military governor of Siamese Malaya was Lt. Gen. Luang Phairirayordet.

Hi major grubert. Thanks for the information you've provided. Do you know which units, cavalry etc. was for example stationed in Kelantan at that time?

The 2nd Marine Battalion was stationed in Kelantan. Commanded by Lieutenant Kawi Haocharern, it was composed of four companies and an infantry gun platoon. The battalion departed Sattahip naval base by sea on October 16, 1943. In October 1944 Kawi was replaced by Lieutenant Phon Phrompraphan, a company commander in the 3rd Marine Battalion.

Thank you very much much again major gruber. How many soldiers did the Marine battalion had and what type of weapon they used? Do you have more information on the Marine battalion?
