    That's me about half way through, I'll keep plugging away - if anyone can add liberation questionnaires, war diaries, local newspaper cuttings or extracts from Regimental/Battalion histories or anything to add more info please do - for quite a few they were captured as part of large groups (Singapore, Tobruk, St Valery etc) but for those taken in smaller actions any information that sets the scene would be good.

    Bamboo43, sorry for the late reply - it can be really hard trying to identify units, plus lots of books sold with any connection to the Far East have Chindit somewhere in the blurb - I only have 2 that I know of (so not really worth a Chindit paybook thread - maybe one day)but who knows what else is in amongst my folders.
