Thanks CF. It is definitely true that a few of the more senior officers glossed over their Chindit credentials in order to progress in the Army and it is possibly why Calvert never really did (although obviously he had other issues going on). I know for sure that one or two Longlcoth veterans down-played their parts in 1943 in order to side-step into service with the Arab Legion after the war. They remarked that ironically, that had Wingate not been killed, they would have been in direct conflict with him later on, assuming his continuation in the support of Israel. All intriguing stuff.
