108. BURMA VETERAN: ARAKAN, KOHIMA AND BURMA

IPGL Tent, Sun 1st July 13:30 - 14:30 (60 mins)

Robin Rowland was an officer in Slim’s Fourteenth Army, fighting at the Battle of the Admin Box – the first significant victory against the Japanese – and then at the hell of Kohima and on through the final battles at Meiktila in Burma in 1945. His is an absolutely extraordinary story in which he saw truly terrible things but also witnessed immense courage, tragedy and camaraderie. Not to be missed.

In conversation with James Holland.
