I collect Leicestershire Regiment memorabilia (my Grandad was in NW Europe) and I have just bought a Kitbag belonging to Pte F Tyrer (5260307). He was in Column 74, 7th Bn Leicestershire Regiment.

Does anybody have any information on Pte Tyrer? I would love to know more about him.

Hi, as a child my father would tell me of his exploits in the chindits, he was born in Ireland in 1913 and moved to England , were he joined the army. His name was john Joseph Smith, later he changed his surname to smythe. He died 30 years ago when I was seventeen . I have no service number and have just started the process of trying to find out about his service history. If any one remembers a j Smith, or could point me in the right direction of trying to trace army records, many thanks andrew

My Dad Albert Wellings passed away in 2003. I would love to hear from anyone that could account for which column he was in 47 or 74). Lamberts account seems toconcur with everything dad told me happened in Burma from the training to the Capetown castle but I am still sketchy on which actions he may have been involved in.

My grandfather was in the 7th Leicesters (Muleteer) Arthur John Perrin. My nan said he became so attached to Bessy his mule he wanted to bring her home at the end of the campaign. Any info on the 7th Leicesters and the operations they specifically undertook would be greatful. Have photos of 7th Leicesters if anyone would like copies sant to them just contact me via e-mail. Will need to sort through them so could take a little time.

My Father Harold William Wilkes was with the 7th Leics Regt assigned to 14th Infantry Brigade (Javelin)? 74 column. He was with Wingate at some point and captured by the Japanese. He escaped with cerebral spinal malaria and shipped to Rangoon to hospital. He never spoke of his experiences only saying the Japs were cruel. Dad had a dachshund called I think Monty - I have a picture of him and his fellow soldiers with him holding this dog. Dad suffered from malaria from time to time all his life, and he died from a brain haemmorage in February 1973 aged 54. Can anyone help fill in the gaps for me. Does anyone know anything about Dad? If not, where can I find information. I wish I had started this when Mum was still alive. She passed away in January 2011 aged 89. Please help if you can. thanks
