Hi all Quick intro, I'm Paul, 31, and currently live in Staffordshire (but originally from Oldham!). My Grandad on my dad's side, who sadly passed away in 1999 aged 83, fought in Burma in 1944. Like a lot of people, he didn't really talk about his time in the war, and didn't really keep many items from that period (although we thankfully still have his medals). Towards the end of 2015 my dad sent away from Grandad's (Jim's) army records, and we were surprised at what we got back - his movements throughout the war and his notification of release. And we were really proud to read: Military conduct ‘Exemplary’ Testimonial: ‘A really good type of soldier, trustworthy, sober and cheerful, who always worked willingly. Saw active service in Burma 1944 and is strongly recommended for any employment entailing mechanical work, such as driving and maintaining a motor vehicle. So I've started to write up for my family what he did in the war, and also I've been reading a lot about what the Chindits did in Burma (I'm ashamed to say I didn't really know much until this year, despite having an interest in military history). Anyway, here is his story as far as I can tell, and I also have a few questions and photos I'm hoping people can help me with to fill in some gaps... In June 1940, just after his first wedding anniversary, Jim was called to colour for the Lancashire Fusiliers. Then between 1940 - 1943, Jim moved around the UK quite a bit (Sudbury, Fusiliers; Colchester, Fusiliers; Royal Armoured Corps; Kings Royal Rifle Corps; South Lancashire Regiment, Cambridgeshire; 4th East Lancashire Regiment, Long Melford). He also did a course in cobbling! Jim's home service came to an end on 16th June 1943. Based on Jim's arrival date in Bombay (13th August 1943), I think he travelled in convoy WS31 (which arrived on the same date). A week later on the 22nd August, Jim was SOS from the South Lancs Regiment to 1st Bt King's Regiment (Liverpool) and 5 months later entered the concessional area (21st January 1944). So I assume in the 5 months he was with the King's training in the jungles of central India. There are no records between entering the concessional area on the 21st January 1944 and being admitted to a field hospital on the 20th July, 1944, so this is where I've had to follow his regiment and the columns 81 and 82. So I assume he was with either column 81 and 82 until their withdrawal in July. I'm also assuming he was at Blackpool rather than one of the 140 men who were ambushed on the march from Broadway (just based on probability and the date he came out!). It also lines up with something I read "On the 17th July an inspection of the Indian 111th Infantry Brigade found that only 118 were completely fit for active service; many of the remaining about 2,200 men suffered from malaria, foot rot, septic sores, typhus, or other ailments related to the Burma jungles". On the 20th July 1944 Jim was posted to X(ii) and admitted to CMH Panitola, and discharged two days later. On the 27th July, Jim returned from the concessional area. On the 1st August Jim reported to the Unit Depot (1st Battalion, Kings). And this is the bit I need help with... On the 4th August I think his records say: Adm. to P W Camp/Curp? Hospital, C/R? Town. To X (ii) C list’. And on the 17th October 1944 Jim was discharged with a note (1 BCD) to 1st Battalion, Kings. After this, Jim (we think, because he did speak about parachute training) was part of 15th Bn Parachute Regiment, and he is recorded as being in Malthone in Feb 1945 and Rawalpindi in May 1945. He was in Dehru Dun in June 1945, and finally embarked at Bombay for the UK on 11th Feb 1946. Not sure which convoy he came back on. Sorry for the long post, although I've typed up 18 pages for the family! I've attached the bit I'm stuck on. Does it say "C List" and "1BCD"? I know what the acronym BCD means so I'm just wondering if it was used at this time, and have also read about the "c list" - if it does say that. I'll post some other photos below on a separate post as this is quite long now!
