A Chaplain with the Chindits, by W.H. Miller

Published by the Kings Own Museum in 2004, 50 pages. A4 size booklet (N5716)

In this booklet the author recounts his experiences during the Second Chindit Campaign. Stationed in India as an Army Chaplain, Reverand Wilfred H. Miller volunteered for active service with the 2nd Battalion of the Kings Own Royal Regiment (Lancaster), and served in the Burma jungle during the second operation mounted by the 'Chindits'.

From the prologue: This book was born out of adversity. When I was in hospital at Barrackport near Calcutta in 1944, it was suggested to me that I should put on paper all I could remember of the Second Chindit Campaign in Burma. For weeks  on end, I had nothing to do except to criticise the food, the weather, the staff, and India in general, and it was in those days of enforced idleness I wrote what follows in the Journal.

Condition of the booklet is generally good. The cover has one or two minor scuffs and blemishes, but the slide binder is intact, and all pages are clean, intact and unblemished. The bottom left hand corner of the rear side cover has been clipped.
