In the darkest hours of the Second World War, thousands of men from Burma (now Myanmar) gave their lives fighting a brutal war for Britain against the Japanese. Together, they helped carry out one of the most successful guerrilla campaigns of the war.
But after the Allied victory, Burma sank into isolation, dictatorship and civil war, and Britain forgot the bravery of these men.
Now, only a handful of veterans remain. Will they get the recognition they deserve before it’s too late? One determined band of Brits is in a race against time to make sure they do.
This film was made possible by the generous support of hundreds of individual donors from around the world, each moved by the story of the Forgotten Allies.
The film screening will be followed by a Q&A session with the filmmakers.
