Lloyd, Wilfrid Lewis (1896-1944)

Lloyd commanded 14 Indian Division in the first Arakan campaign. He was relieved by Irwin for failing to repel the Japanese counterattack of March 1943, when he had been put in the nearly impossible position of trying to control nine brigades with only a division headquarters. He was subsequently sent to Cyprus to take command of the exhausted 10 Indian Division as it absorbed replacements and trained.
