75 years ago in the spring of 1944, the all-conquering Japanese – supported by Indian nationalists, launched a major offensive against the Anglo-Indian 14th Army at Imphal & Kohima, with the intention of pre-empting the Allies re-invasion of South East Asia and potentially seizing India & the Raj.

Against a backdrop of jungle-clad mountainous terrain, monsoon rains, hazardous lines of communication a panoply of British, Indian, Gurkha, African, American, Chinese, local indigenous tribes and others took on a dogged and menacing enemy in some of the hardest fought and bloodiest engagements in history.

The 9th Battalion The Border Regiment was engaged in the early stages of Imphal battle as part of 48 Brigade and 17 Indian Division in late 1943, early 1944 prior to embarking on the 2nd Chindit expedition.
