At this link some new info is provided by Taki concerning Allied armour on Java:
590 tanks and armoured cars including bren carriers!
As I wrote in the earlier post there must have been around 200 KNIL tanks and armoured cars on Java alone in 42. Which leaves a number of almost 400 other tanks, carriers and armoured cars!
Does someone know how many South African recce cars were supposed to be in South East Asia (Malaya, Singapore, convoys) by march 1 st 1942 and does someone know a generic unit number for carriers and Humber LRCs (so many per battalion/recce regiment etc)?
