It's starting to feel very lonely on this topic. I keep looking and sadly I am too late when finding only obituaries. I wish Granda had spoken of Operations Longcloth & Thursday sooner. He didn't talk about his military service much with his own family, far less the 14 Grand-Children & now 25 Great-Grand Children since, however I expect a lot of it was too painful to share. My Granda is my hero & he is enjoying my interest in the Burma Campaign. I know he wishes that he might have been reunited with "any" of his fellow Chindits since crawling out of the jungle a shadow of a man, half blind & suffering malaria. Sadly he never did & still wonders to this day if any of Calvert's column from Longcloth or if any the men with him on the hillock of Blackpool survived when they heard the words "every man for himself"
