On 20 February 1942 the Japanese begun landing troops at Koepang and at Dili and at both locations met with strong resistance. Withdrawing to Chamlong, Leggatt's 2/40th Battalion, part of Sparrow Force, formed up in convoy and twice threw the Japanese paratroopers out of Babau, a small village that was blocking their way. Japanese causalities were around 400 for the loss of 217 AIF casualties. On 23 February the last trucks in the convoy looked back to see Japanese light tanks behind them. Faced with annihilation the battalion surrendered.
