Bicycle troop.10

Japanese Imperial Army Superior private, 25thArmy; Malaysia January 1942
On 6 November 1941, Yamashita was put in command of the 25th Army. On 8 December, he launched an invasion of Malaya, from bases in French Indochina. In the campaign, which concluded with the fall of Singapore on 15 February 1942, Yamashita's 30,000 front-line soldiers captured 130,000 British, Indian, and Australian troops, the largest surrender of British-led personnel in history. He became known as the "Tiger of Malaya".
The bicycle troops became his Blitzkrieg, who took 54 days to conquer all Malaysia.

Here are the pictures for reference, which gave the idea for this diorama.
I’ve just won the first prize of category 3 form OSS competition.
