As far as I checked, all heavy artillery battalions with 15cm cannons were equipped with Type 89 and Type 96 is not found among them.

2nd Independent Heavy Artillery Battalion was reinforced to 25th Army when the battle of Singapore.

It is 3rd Independent Mountain Gun Regiment correctly. It had 24 Type 41 Mountain Guns. Though 3rd Independent Mountain Gun Regiment was once attached to 25th Army, it did reach Malaya. On the way, it was sent to the Philippines.

You said about 22nd Field Gun Regiment or 22nd Field Heavy Artillery Regiment? In 1941, 22nd Field Gun Regiment was in the Philippines and it had 75mm field guns and 10cm howitzers. 22nd Field Heavy Artillery Regiment was in Kwuntung Army sector in 1941 and it had 10cm cannons.
