The Guards Attack!


Situation:  It is 23 December 1941.  A brigade (-) of Malay troops has cut the Japanese supply line down the Kroh-Gerik Road by capturing Kroh from the west.  A regiment of the Imperial Guard with tank support is sent down to restore supply to the cut off 42nd Regt. 

Soldiers of the Malay Regiment in action.

A battalion of the Imperial Guard advances towards the Kroh crossroad.

The Malays spring their ambush.  The guard column is halted.

However, the Japanese attempt a double envelopment, forcing the Malays to abandon their position at Kroh.  The remnants of the 1st and 2nd battalions, the Malay Regiment, retreat towards 12th Indian Brigade positions to the south.
