REMEMBERING THE WW2
The Road to Rangoon
This book is a tribute to the Forgotten Army
and all those who fought in the Burma Campaign,
In particular it remembers David Louis John Green and
the 139th Jungle Field Regiment of the Royal Artillery.
Anthony Green did not see his father David until he
was three years old. David had returned home,
to the village of Woodfalls, weighing six and a half
stone, unannounced, on the bus from Salisbury.
His experiences included fighting in the Arakan
where he was trapped in the infamous Admin Box
surrounded for 21 days, on the Imphal to Kohima Road,
and onward through Burma, not returning to England
until 1946. While he was lucky enough to return, David had spells of malaria all his life and died aged 68.
