On Monday I held the funeral for my dear father 14301957 Corporal John Hone, 1st Battalion the Northamptonshire Regiment, 1943-47. A proud 'Steelback', his Burma Star beret with Northamptons' cap-badge was placed on the coffin along with his medals and Union Flag. I was very pleased that the Olton, Solihull, branch of the Royal British Legion turned out with their standard bearer. Coincidentally the Richard Holmes 'The Map Room: Burma' programme was repeated on BBC4 the day after. I caught the last 30 seconds of it. To my chagrin I have now missed this widely acclaimed programme (which paved the way for the Prof's many subsequent series) both times it has been shown. Does anyone happen to have it on tape? Generous terms offered to borrow it!
