I found this rare image of the memorial to the officers and men of the 36th Division who died in the Arakan 1944. I have never seen a photo of it before, and I suspect it no longer exists.Time and weather will have seen to that. I do not know of its exact location but it cannot have been far off the route taken by 9th Royal Sussex when they pulled out of the Arakan in May 1944- somewhere between the Ngakyedauk Pass and Dosari. It came from a privately published account of Major M.C.Cash's time whilst serving with the 9th Royal Sussex., which was compiled by his son.There must have been a service to unveil the memorial, and you can see the before and after images here. Major Cash was awarded the MC for his actions in taking one of the infamous tunnels on the Maungdaw-Buthidaung Road. Many of the men were decorated too.It was their first action in Burma, but not the last.
