While World War Two raged in Europe, troops from Britain and her colonies were also fighting in the East. One of the ordinary soldiers sent to Burma was a young man from Leicester, Jack Machen. As a battery sergeant major in the 11th East African Division Jack and his men helped clear the way for the crucial bridgehead over the river Chindwin which enabled the Fourteenth Army to drive the Japanese from Mandalay. Jack's letters home to his future wife reveal the day-to-day life of the troops, while extracts from the regimental War Diary show the many obstacles and dangers which Jack glosses over in his letters. He was one of the lucky ones to arrive safely back home.
