India’s Participation in the Allied Occupation of Japan | Amsterdam University Press Journals Online


Despite participating in the occupation of Japan from March 1946 through to October 1947, the participation of the Indian Army and Royal Indian Air Force (RIAF) in the Allied Occupation has been largely ignored. This chapter provides background to the despatch of the Indian troops to Japan and outlines some of the duties and activities of both forces during their deployment to Japan. It introduces the make-up of both contingents and some of the interactions between the troops and the local Japanese as well as other troops.
