I've just started doing a bit of research for a friend. She handed me a few bits and bobs about her grandad. She knew nothing about his service, other than he'd 'been to Burma'. I've had a little look through some of the docs she supplied. His service record shows that he served from enlistment as follows East Lancs Regiment 16/10/39 - 30/05/43 - 2nd Battalion. Lancs Fusiliers 31/5/43 - 31/5/43 - 1st Battalion North Staffs 1/6/43 - 25/3/46 - 1st Battalion. He was a recipient of the 39-45 Star, Defence Medal, War Medal and Burma Star. Before I start delving properly, i'm just a little intrigued about his transferrals and would like anyone with a little bit of knowledge of the Burma theatre to give me a steer if possible. Would he have jumped from one regiment to another because this was around the time of the Chindits forming and those that didn't want to be, 'Chindits' were placed with other regiments? As I say, i'm a bit ignorant around this particular subject and would appreciate any input or recommended reading that might enlighten me as to movements of these particular units and why he'd have a 1 day transfere into the Lancs Fusiliers As ever, any help gratefully received and anything above and beyond, i'd be happy to send a bright and shiny, signed copy of Picking Up the Brass. All the best, Convoy cock.
