    I am ashamed to say that i had forgotten this date until I saw an article on this morning's BBC News.

    This was the Forgotten Army as they thought of themselves. Fought a hugely difficult war and I salute all those who took part.

  2. Me too, I have always been crap at remembering dates. :oops:
  3. I'll be raising a glass (or two) tonight.

  5. Just reading the book'Wingate and the chindits', all theatres of the second world war were bad but theres just something about the campaigns in the far east that just sets it apart.
