Operation Fitting

This was the British overall plan by Lieutenant General Sir Philip Christison’s Indian XV Corps of Lieutenant General Sir Oliver Leese’s Allied Land Forces South-East Asia command for operations by its British, Indian and West African formations against Lieutenant General Tadashi Hanaya’s 55th Division on the Mayu peninsula of the Arakan western coastal region of Japanese-occupied Burma (November 1944).

The basic plan was then developed into ‘Romulus’ (ii) and ‘Talon’ against the 55th Division, which was a formation of Lieutenant General Shozo Sakurai’s 28th Army.
