Hi, I just found out today my Grandad was with this regiment. John Ryan, I don't know much else yet.
They look to be wearing an Irish caubeen (hat). Maybe Inniskilling Fusiliers?
Hi Lionboxer, The lady who sent the photos had asked her brothers and their brother had told them he was in Poona with his mate. I am hoping for an email ASAP. I am still more than staggered the number of people who haven't a clue about the Burma Campaign. Will let you know as soon as i get an answer. Best Regards Ken B.
