'Forgotten Army' commemorated

24 September 2015

Jersey men who served in what is known as the 'Forgotten Army' are to be remembered at a commemorative event this Sunday.

The British Fourteenth Army was a multinational force comprising units from various Commonwealth countries that engaged in operations in the Burma Campaign during WWII.

On Sunday 27 September at midday, the Deputy Bailiff, Timothy Le Cocq, will attend the unveiling of a special commemorative plaque in memory of those who served. The Chief Minister is also scheduled to attend.

The event, which will be held at lower Mount Bingham, will be attended by local families and includes a service and a wreath laying ceremony. The event is open to the public.

The Deputy Bailiff said "I am delighted to be attending this special event to commemorate those who served in the Forgotten Army, especially as this is being held during the Island's seventieth year of Liberation. It is entirely appropriate that those Islanders who fought in WWII conflicts outside Europe  are recognised in this way and that the Island remembers the contribution they made."
