    For some time I have been collating a database of all the men of this battalion who fought in Burma in 1941/42. I now seem to have reached the limit of available online resources such as the CWGC, Official Casualty Lists, Burma Star Association membership forms, etc. I have also updated and corrected, as far as possible, the names listed in Burma 1942, Memories of a Retreat, The Diary of Ralph Tanner, KOYLI.

    I am now at the stage where I need help from private sources. If anyone has any possible names for inclusion on the list, please let me know.

    I am happy to share the information that I have on any individual, but please be aware that in many cases it does not go much beyond name and Service Number and event such as KIA, Wounded, POW, etc.

    I do intend to upload the completed list onto the forum at some stage.

    Many thanks,

    Simon

    Another great effort from you Simon. I have some missing in action listings and can give you a break down of those who ended up prisoners of war at Rangoon Jail. The other book that might assist, is No Mandalay, No Maymyo by Gerald Fitzpatrick.

    Ah yes - I was a bit hasty with my earlier reply - I have No Mandalay, No Maymyo also.

    I should have mentioned NMNM in my first post, I have a copy and it has been invaluable.

    I can list those that I know to have been PoWs and I have copies of the cards for a few of them. I do not know how many ended up in Rangoon Jail but I do know that they were there before the 13th King's. :)

    I look forward to seeing what you have.

    Steve,

    I do not have a copy of the regimental history, does it give a list of names for members of the 2nd Btn? I would be very interested to see the chapter on the 1942 fighting.

    Simon.

    It has just occurred to me that if you are both called Steve then this could get quite confusing. Who wants to be No 1 Steve?

    I have posted the full list but it is still confusing without the columns. I will add more information as I find it.

    Hi Simon,

    Steve R posted first, so he can be Steve 1. I will send you what I have by email. Give me a while and I will find the POW cards for those KOYLI's I have. Here is what I have recorded in terms of POWs:

    Steve,

    many thanks, that is exactly the sort of information that I am looking for. BTW. I was joking about the numbering.

    Simon.

    Steve,

    I have updated my list from your PoW list. I will add Christian names and other details to those on your list and send it back.

    Thanks Simon, I will send the POW index cards via email. Here are the 1942 MIA lists, although you might already have these, they are from the WO361 series:

    Brilliant, many thanks, now I have an excuse not to leave the house as collating these will keep me busy.

    Simon,

    I'll check the book(s) - I think the story is spread across two volumes.

    I'll DM you regarding the chapter(s).

    Battalion Christmas card 1940 sent by 103021 Captain Charles Alexander Fox. The inside sketch appears to be of the Mandalay Palace, (Fort Dufferin).

    1941 Christmas card sent by Captain Fox but probably sent at least a month earlier. December 1941 was the last Christmas that the 2nd King's Own Yorkshire Light Infantry ever spent in Burma and nothing would ever be the same again afterwards.

    Captain Fox was not involved with the fighting in 1941/42 as he was incapacitated with an attack of Polio. He remained at the Alexandra Barracks, the Regimental Depot at Maymyo and was put in charge of the welfare of the wives and children. Later still, he was responsible for leading the 126 sick left behind at the barracks out of Burma and into India, burying the regimental silver en route but retaining the Colours.

    Here is an extract from a letter he sent in December 1941.

    Volume V of the history does not have any personnel lists. However the narrative contains many names and not just officers. More later....
