Following on from my previous thread, thanks to help from people on this forum, I have had copied the War Diaries for 81(WA) Div Pack Bullock Coy of which my father, Capt A J MIlls was OC. They were AMAZING to see as they are in his handwriting with his signature so many times. As you can imagine, it was very emotional seeing this and knowing he wrote them whilst in Burma, starting March 1944. The Company flew in with their bullocks on Dakotas to MEDAUNG, on the ARAKAN front. I have tracked the route they took over the next few months, coming under enemy fire at PAGODA HILL, crossing various CHAUNG and rivers, being supplied by air. They carried petrol, medical supplies, ammunition, food and pasturage, and linked with various Field Ambulance units and with HUBFORCE. They were at PALETWE and MOWDOK amongst other places before being sent back to CHIRINGA (SPIDERPORE) for the monsoon. They seemed to have had trouble with the saddles for the bullocks, as they were always trying to find better adaptations. Many African Other Ranks (AOR's) were sent to hospital and bullocks also for spine gall treatment! The whole unit was disbanded in Feb 1945 and my father was sent to join 1781(WA) Comp Platoon, whatever that was. Anyone know?? He remained in India until Feb 1946. I have joined the Chindit Society, but now know that he was not one, in spite of having a Chindit Badge in his collection. I do not know why that would be. Anyway, thanks for everyone's assistance in helping me find so much about what my father did. I now know more than I ever thought possible. Elaine.
