    That is a fine tribute there Tony. It reminded me that two War Correspondents perished with General Wingate in March 1944. More information can be read from the link below and I should mention that our good friend on the forum, Raj, has been heavily involved in erecting a memorial at the actual crash site.

    War Correspondents with the Chindits, including the story of Moti Lal Katju.

    Thanks for sharing those links Steve - makes for very detailed and facinating reading. Have noted Captain Moti Lal Katju's role as War Correspondent/Official Observer (Operation Lioncloth)/Indian Army Press Officer and, as such, have added both his name to my original post and included a 10th image which shows his name on Face 112 of The Rangoon Memorial. As an aside: Have e-books (pdf) versions of 2 books written by Alaric Jacob - ''A Traveller's War'' and ''A Window in Moscow.'' Am happy to share copies with those who provide me with an e-mail address.

    Thanks for adding Moti Lal Katju to your post Tony. Both books mentioned are very good reads if other's are interested.
