EDM 285 – 22 July 2014

SEVENTIETH ANNIVERSARY OF THE BURMA CAMPAIGN

[This EDM was tabled jointly with Sir Bob Russell MP. It was eventually supported by 65 MPs.]

That this House recognises with respect and gratitude all who fought in the war in Burma 70 years ago; notes that this was the longest land campaign of the Second World War; salutes the memory of nearly 40,000 British and Commonwealth Service personnel who died in the fighting, as well as the thousands more killed in captivity; and commends the work of The Not Forgotten Association, a tri-service charity for the wounded in keeping alive the memory of such sacrifices.
