Can anyone clarify the Japanese forces that captured Ternate in Jan 1942 and the strength of the Dutch forces that held the island?

From Graham Donaldson's map it appears to have been by the 228th Regt of the 38th Div enroute to Ambon, but I can find no actual mention of the operation.

Similarly, can anyone advise the garrison and attack forces at Banda Islands soon after the Ambon capture?

Many thanks
