After blowing the Bonchaung Station railway bridge on March 06 and crossing the Irrawaddy three days later, 5 Column has been operating as the furthest East brtish troops for around a week. Infested with lice, short on food, and on incredibly low water rations, it is vital for the column to find a water source capable of watering all the men and mules in order to prepare for the march alongside no 3 column towards their next target, the Gokteik Gorge viaduct. Reports of evidence of recent japanese movement have also come in from clearance patrols scouting the area around the column bivouac. A request has come from Wingate to assault these discovered Japanese positions, clearing the area before the meeting with 3 cloumn.


It is proposed that the column moves to clear the Japanese positions at Brigade Hill and Boridi Village, before advancing on Brown river and securing the spring and area around Boridi Crossing for 3 and 5 columns to water all men and mules.
