“When you go home tell them of us and say,

15 Aug

for your tomorrow, we gave our today.”

Today is the 75th Anniversary of VJ Day and I’m watching it’s remembrance on the BBC.

These moving words were quoted in connection with the Burma Campaign (“a forgotten Army in a forgotten war”).

Well worth a visit to the Burma Star site (www.burmastar.org…) and finding out a bit more of the larger story behind a certain cinematic effort and of which “Errol Flynn described … as one of the roles that he was most proud of.”

    Thank you, Tim, for posting the link to that website. I’ve been a history buff starting in college, with a particular interest in World War II. The Burma Campaign typically has not been given as much attention as other areas, and this website is a great resource for learning more about that aspect of the war.
