I wonder if anyone can help me here. I have an elderly relative in his late eighties who was in 13th Lancs batallion 5th parachute brigade. He has never talked about the war as I suspect he had a rather unpleasant time. However , he has recently told me that a mutiny of sorts ( more collective indiscipline) occured whilst on policing operations with japanese troops in Indonesia in 1946 after 5th P. brigade had been transferred east for a possible invasion of Japan. He states that the mutiny was concerned with : a: having to work with their former enemies, ie the Japanese. b: Having regular inspection and drills under insanitary conditions (bear in mind they had just been through Normandy and the Ardennes and the Rhine crossing As part of 6th Airborne). I think at the time he had a Brevet rank and states that whilst he had sympathy for the mutineers, he did not take part in it because he would rather not be hung as he would have been marked as a ring leader. His query is: WHAT HAPPENED TO THOSE WHO TOOK PART IN THE COLLECTIVE INDISCIPLINE. He states that no one found out. They simply disappeared. Whilst he suspects that they were merely transferred and disciplined, it nags on his mind, especially as some of them were new recruits who had been drafted in to replace prior casualties and disease cases. Can anyone help provide details of this incident or further information / sources? Moderater: If this is not the right place, can you leave a nessage here and I will ref . the correct thread.
