I seem unwittingly to have activated these by an incursion into the Thai boundary. fair enough. However can someone point me to where in the rules it tells you this happens, cos I cannot find anything about it?

8.8 INDO-CHINA JAPANESE MILITIA
Each time an Allied unit moves into Indo-China, the Japanese will receive a Japanese
(representing Vietnamese/Vichy French forces) militia division (up to a maximum of 4). Thus if
2 ground units move into Indo-China, and then 1 unit moves from one border hex to another, 3
militia divisions will be formed. These militia divisions will be formed in Hanoi, Haiphong, Luang
Prabang, and Hue in that order, and they will be formed at 1/3 strength.

In WitP-AE, Thai forces start the war as Japanese Allies. In PBEM players usually have a house-rule that Thai forces have to stay in Thailand, or must stay within a certain distance (3 hexes, fx).

Historically, the Thai government declared war on the Allies on January 25th, 1942. They did not fight against the British, but did occupy Northern Malaya and a portion of the Shan States, where they skirmished with a sinbgle Chinese division. In 1943 the Thai's signed an armistice (with the Chinese division commander (!)). In July, 1944 the pro-Japanese government was deposed in a coup.

Indo China is not Thailand, all the information quoted above refers to what we now call Vietnam, as do all the cities mentioned. I gather I was mistaken and all the Thai units are in play from the start. If they are not restricted then I guess with Japanese persuasion they could have been deployed outside their borders.... though that then leaves Thailand open to assault from other means....

As we didn't discuss these units and any house rule we will have to agree how we handle it...

Sorry for bothering folks here.

Roger

The Thai units are all restricted and cannot be reassigned. They also withdraw in 1944, as Blackhorse mentioned.

And are very poor units. Low exp and poorly equipped.
