WW2 - 3rd Indian Army Division Rare Chindits Collection
Superb group of items to the Chindits whose exploits in Burma in WW2 are well known. Led by Major- General Orde Wingate they made history with their airborne and jungle penetration expeditions. This grouping includes a yellow on blue embroidered Chinthern formation sign, a white on blue shoulder title " Chindit " and a scarce gold wire bullion title " Chindits, but most especially the rare original certificate from 1944 outlining the duties of being a Chindit and a member of this Special Force. The certificate has fold lines and has been fixed to a backing sheet many years ago to preserve it. See page 105 of Peter Taylor's book for a copy of this certificate. All in good condition, cloth items have white bluetack to the reverse. Please note I will not break this grouping up. See accompanying photos listed below.
