Sorry Sol, just re-read my own link it was the 1/4 of the Q.E. Own Gurkha Rifles who arrrived on 10th March when the battle for Mandaly Hill, was nearly over see the last link above. I agree with the point about the Berets and is it possible that being as Dad spoke of being in a Spearhead unit that he was part of a Recce outfit? and Dad was not a officer made corporal a few times but got busted! You mean 1/6th Gurkha Rifles (It became Q.E. only after the war). Then you probably can exclude any Indian (or Gurkha) unit. Maybe he was attached to some of them as support or they patrolled together but I think that he couldn't be part of any of them. I must admit that badge on beret really looks like those of Y&LR but then again I can't be 100% sure. I think that without his service record it will be hard to find out what was his original unit. Maybe if you succeed to find some information about Chadwick you will have a chance but if it was his first name than you'll have to search manually every name on every possible memorial in Burma and Singapore.
