    On a similar note, last year a team of archivists and explorers visited the jungle landing strip in Northern Burma used by the Chindits in 1944. The Broadway strip as it was code-named is located in Kachin controlled territory and was difficult to access, both physically and politically. After a few days search the team struck lucky, unearthing the crumpled wrecks of crashed WACO gliders, as well as carcasses of Japanese artillery and other weaponry. More info to come in the next Chindit Society newsletter.
