The Burma Star Association exists to relieve need, hardship or distress among men and women who served in HM and Allied Forces or the Nursing Services in the Burma Campaign of the 1939-45 war or are otherwise entitled to be holders of the Burma Star or Pacific Star with Burma Clasp and for their widows, widowers or dependants.
The Association is saddened to have to announce the passing of The Countess Mountbatten of Burma. The Countess had served as the Vice Patron since 1982 and attended many events over the years. Our thoughts are with her family.
During 2015, the year which marked the 70th anniversary of V-J Day, Wendy Aldiss photographed over 200 allied Burma Veterans in the UK and a small selection in Burma (now Myanmar). Wendy’s father was part of 2nd Division in Burma during WWII.
Part of Wendy’s collection of photographs will be on display at the National Memorial Arboretum from Saturday 25th November to Sunday 25th February 2018.
