    Shame it's not as far as the Highlands and a distillery tour just does not float your boat... :biggrin:

    Just watched a video online about the WW2 memoirs of Peter Homfray who worked in deception in Burma. He organised a dummy paratroop attack close to the Burmese town of Bhamo to distract the Japanese garrison while the Chindits landed at Broadway. He stayed with 77 Brigade for a while, but ended up a casualty evacuee via Indawgyi.

    Hebridean Chindit and veronicad like this.
