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.
