I hope that in the remembrance, today, of the "forgotten war" that the television and the press will also remember those from further afield who also died in that war.
There is a "Burma Star Road" in Benin City in Nigeria (where my wife comes from) as it was not only British and Australian servicemen that died in that campaign but also from what is now India, Pakistan as the then Indian Army but less well known men from West Africa in the Nigeria Regiment, in the Gold Coast Regiment and others in the 82nd (West Africa) Division in Burma. Indeed even today most barracks of the current Nigerian Army are named after battles of the Burma Campaign.
One of my late mother's friends officered men from the Nigeria Regiment in that campaign as was the "norm" then, with white officers and black ORs.
