Advice on discovering Japanese units

Post by gengeo » 13 Dec 2018 14:50

As part of an ongoing research project I need to find out which Japanese units my great-grandfather's artillery regiment would have faced during his time in Burma from 1944-45.

I've seen the war diaries so I have a list of places where the regiment went over the course of those two years but I need to figure out how to discover the Japanese regiments he would have been engaged with. I have a couple of Japanese historians I'm going to reach out to for help but if these leads fall through I'll be a little stuck.

Any advice would be hugely appreciated, thanks,
