Has there ever been any question regarding Wingates untimely death and how it came about? I know the story that his plane went down but I am curious to know if there has ever been any question as to the nature of his death, specifically anything suspicious about it? The reason I ask this is because it always seemed out of place for me, am I the only person to think this? Reports seem to indicate that Wingate was a hothead, could be unstable and was pretty reckless. Was it not the case that Wingate attempted suicide before taking on the Chindits in India/Burma? I have to wonder if he was proving a bit of a liability at some level higher up the chain ( A'la Kurtz ) and they bumped him? This may be completely wrong but I have to admit the official story of his death never sat right for me - I can't say why. I welcome any further thoughts or speculation on this. Simon.
