Historical Background:
After the disaster at Sittang River in February, British troops defending Burma seemed to face a hopeless task and fell back to Rangoon. From there newly arrived from the North African desert the 7th Hassars found the terrain in Pegu suitable for Armour. They momentarily checked the Japanese advance, but the Japanese seem to be everywhere at once. The 7th Hassars advanced on the Village of Payagyi to find the Japanese once again already there. The Japanese Guns opened fire, as the 7th Hassars advanced to silence them. The British forces managed to secure Payagyi and capture Japanese guns; but the Japanese counter attacked with armour of their own. However, Japanese poorly co-ordinate their attack, and in the end proved they no match for the experienced desert rats.
