    The 1st Armoured Division had suffered particularly heavy losses, losing all but 40 of their original complement of tanks as well as 85 guns of all types. The 15th Panzer Division had begun to advance westwards along the Pilastrino Ridge, where elements of the st Guards Brigade had taken up exposed positions at short notice. However, Auchinleck now began to reassess the Tobruk position. Seventeen Indian Division, earmarked for service in the desert, was instead sent to Rangoon. Neither he nor Ritchie wanted to lose the considerable stockpiles of fuel, munitions and other stores which had been built up at the port for the intended British offensive. From here they were to strike the panzers in the flank should the Panzergruppe manage a breakthrough.

    In short, they were behaving like garrison troops. By 23 December Jagdgeschwader 27 had been chased off its base at Magrun and 36 Axis aircraft lay smouldering at the airstrip at Agedabia, victims of a SAS demolition raid. Seventeen Indian Division, earmarked for service in the desert, was instead sent to Rangoon. The forces engaged in the battle were relatively small. He was not worried, and inevitably, neither was Ritchie. The Vichy French government broke off all ties with the British as a result.

    But this was too much too much to expect from his emancipated soldaten and their Italian comrades. This was because British fighters were simply shooting down German bombers faster than German industry could produce them. With the security of his southern flank in mind, Rommel ordered the Gialo Oasis to be occupied. The Desert Fox was merely "sticking his neck out". Lax radio discipline now turned a major setback into a disaster for the British. The Prime Minister was shocked at the failure of "…our fresh armour…" and now demanded that 8th Army stand fast "…like the Huns at Halfaya.
