My father a Scotsman of just 19 was in India as part of the India 8th army fighting in Burma then pushed back to India. Then back in to Burma till the end of the war. He had nothing but respect for the Indian's that had fought along side him. To him and who are part of the Burma star. I salute you all. War is a tenable thing. No one ever really wins. There is so much lost on all sides.

In Malaya, the Indian soldiers fought bravely. Much braver than the English who kept retreating all the way down to Singapore.
