Regarding Walter David Alexander Lentaigne of Chindit fame. According to his obituary and funeral service notification in The Times (25th June 1955 and 5th July 1955) then Lentaigne held the rank of Lieutenant-General at the time of his death. This is also mentioned in his wiki entry: Walter Lentaigne - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Now he was properly granted this as an honorary rank upon retirement, however I have been unable to verify this. Being granted an honorary rank normally means that the officer has held the rank in an acting or temporary capacity for a certain periode, but I have been unable to find anything on Lentaigne's post war promotions except that he was still a Colonel, when he was supposed to have retired on 1st January 1952, but the he was retained while serving with the Indian Armed Forces. (London Gazette, 30th May 1950). So in short I am looking for any information on Lentaigne's post war promotions. I am hoping that some of you might be able to help me. Thanks in advance.
