I am trying to find the exact date that the 3/9th Gurkha Rifles left 4th Indian Infantry Brigade of 26th Indian Division and joined the Chindits. At the same time, the 2/7th Rajput Regiment, the Divisional HQ Battalion, replaced the 3/9th Gurkhas in 4th Indian Brigade. It would be sometime between January and March 1944. I have a tentative date of January 1944, which is when the 3/9th Gurkha Rifles moved to Fenny and left the Arakan for Special Force. I hope that someone can confirm this or come up with another date. The 2/7th Rajput Regiment moved to Chittagong on December 31, 1943 and joined the 26th Indian Division. I assume this was as Divisional HQ Battalion.
