With any luck the Infantry have made up a few petrol bombs when they heard that the Japanese had tanks.On the attempt by its crew to destroy the broken down Matilda tank. Given time, which I do not believe they had, the Japanese could be left with a smoking shell. However ITTL, the crew were not given time, to undertake the task. I question however if the vehicle would have been given Jerrycans, which are a very new introduction to British forces, as apposed to the standard 2 gallon flimsy. And why given that the Matilda was equipped with a Diesel engine, puncturing a fuel can of the tank, as apposed to one from the carrier that was rescuing the crew, would be effective. Diesel is notoriously inflammable, being very difficult to set alight, if you want to touch the tank, far better to use a can of petrol off the carrier.
