Product Description

Details

From the author of The Shamla Radiers.

Born in India in1919, Bruce Kinloch comes from a long line of soldiers and hunter-naturalists; his grandfather, Major- General AAA Kinloch CB wrote an acclaimed book on big-game hunting, while his maternal grandfather Gen GN Channer VC CB was awarded the Victoria Cross while serving with the 1st Gurkha Rifles in Malaya.

It was almost inevitable that young Kinloch should join the army, first to Sandhurst and then, in 1939, to the 3rd Gurkha Rifles. He served first on the North West Frontier and then during the Burma campaign, during which, in 1942, he received the immediate award of the Military Cross for his outstanding part in the Battle of Sittang Bridge.

He later ran some of the first jungle warfare courses and commanded a Chindit battalion.
