I'm finding the complete order of battle of the British forces during the Battle of the Tanga (November 1914).

Can anyone help me?

Dont know much/nothing at all, but i do know the 2nd Loyal North Lancs were involved in the battle of the tanga as part of the 27th Indian Brigade. But im sure you probaly already know that.

In fact just done some googling and came up with this http://www.chakoten.dk/tanga_1914.html#n4

You may also wish to take a look at Byron Farwell's The Great War in Africa. It provides a good overview of the war in Africa and contains a chapter on the Tanga operation.
