Some wonderful images.

Default Burma

Ah Wingate's private army . With the hindsight we now have, many historians reckon the Chindits were a reflection of Wingate's giant ego. Wingate would contact Winnie and get anything he wanted. Hundreds of Allied soldiers died of disease in the jungle for what result.

The radios : guessing

British 22 set

BC312 in the box

A Hallicrafters ? set

Default Book

This book:

Out of the Blue: A pilot with the Chindits
O'Brien, Terence

The author, an Australian, was Wingate's Air Liason officer - he writes with a scathing tone regarding Wingate's behaviour. I think the book is available as a e book download.
