Operation Pippin

This was a British radio deception designed to conceal from the Japanese forces in Burma the fact that Major General D. F. W. Warren’s Indian 5th Division and Major General C. C. Fowkes’s 11th (East Africa) Division had been relieved at the crossing of the Chindwin river by Major General C. G. G. Nicholson’s British 2nd Division and Brigadier W. A. Dimoline’s 28th (East Africa) Brigade (December 1944).
