This thread is an attempt to trace the living family of John Davis, who was a Chindit casualty on the 19th March 1944. It is a long shot I know, but stranger things have happened on the site before now. Casualty This soldier was possibly the friend of Pte. Albert Stanley Evans from Bristol, who was another casualty from the second Chindit expedition in 1944. I will be creating a replica post for Albert shortly. What do we know about John Davis: He was the son of John and Ellen Davis and the husband of Maud Davis from Harborne near Birmingham. He was originally posted to the Royal Engineers, but was transferred to the 2nd King's Own Royal Regiment and served on the second Chindit expedition, Operation Thursday. John went missing on the 19th March 1944, near the Burmese town of Mansi. A missing in action report states that John and another Chindit, RAF Sgt. Richard Southgate went to retrieve a mailbag after a supply drop had gone astray, but never returned. Southgate perished as a POW in Rangoon Jail, but Cpl. Davis was never seen again and so is remembered upon the Rangoon Memorial. Forum member Tony B. has furnished me with John's inscription upon Face 5 of the Rangoon Memorial. That is all I know really. As I say, I am looking to find his living relatives, so thanks in advance for any help anyone can offer.
