I am not sure if this sort of thread is allowed but I feel the need to highlight this "Chindit" item being offered for sale on a well known auction site. The claim made for it is as follows: "Original Named British ww2 Far East Asia chindits Burma medal and army book". It is an AB64 and an unrelated Burma Star offered as being a Chindit related item. It has no relation to either Chindit expedition and here, very simply, is why. The soldier enlisted into the R.E.M.E. on 21st January 1943 and was discharged as physically unfit on the 28th September 1943. At the moment the bidding has reached £17 which is not bad for a Pay Book and a Burma Star, but it has no Chindit connection whatsoever. It seems quite a common practice to add the "C" word when selling Burma related items but this one stands out for its blatant failure to understand the dates of the two Chindit operations.
