Looking through my collection I decided to look into the background of the soldier who owned this kitbag. 14895691 S. Ovens, Royal Signals, 16th British Brigade GP. Signal Section. I was struck by the unit marking when I realised that the 16th British Infantry Brigade was involved in Operation Thursday, the second Chindit expedition. I appreciate that not all of the Signal Section would have been behind Japanese lines as obviously some signallers would have had to remain behind in India. The Kitbag gives an address of Delhi Cantonment and I would image that Signaller Ovens was based there at some point during his time in India and probably before leaving for the U.K. Any thoughts please?
