    Good to hear from you Pete. Always busy with the website. Being deflected slightly at the moment with the arrangements for the 75th Anniversary commemorations for the first Chindit expedition. :)

    Experiencing the usual spike in traffic on my website during the Remembrance Sunday period. Basically double the normal daily amount. Hopefully it will manifest into a few new family contacts in a day or so.

    Had an enjoyable afternoon doing all those little updates I've been meaning to do on the website for ages. :)

    I know back in 2011, I said I would not write much about the well-known commanders from Operation Longcloth, but in the end I decided its about time I did. Hopefully these mini bios and photographs will be of interest. I've still got 4 more to do, so please do return to the page in the near future.

    Perhaps my most complete Chindit biography in terms of audio, film and narrative. Bill Smyly was a very special man and the only soldier who served with No. 5 Column (my grandfather's unit) in Burma that I have ever met in person:

    Great work, as you know my Grandfather was killed in the second expedition in 1944. Wish there was as good a site for that one as well.

    Thanks Tanky,

    Just to let you know, your grandfather's photo formed part of a slideshow at the recent 75th Anniversary commemorations for Operation Thursday, held at Hermitage Barracks in Berkshire.
