    I've managed to put together a pretty good library of books and reference material regarding the Burma Campaign all of which is extremely useful from a collecting point of view and also a creative, sculpting point of view. As I have a interest in the Border Regiment, namely the 4th Battalion 23rd Brigade (Chindit) I'm always on the lookout for any literature dealing specifically with this battalion. Unfortunately there is very little information about, especially printed material, so I started to collect odd bits and pieces from the 'net and eventually put it all together in a small, handmade book 'The Forgotten Chindits' this contains a brief overview of Chindit operations, units, formations and a couple of memoirs of 4th Battalion veterans. Once this was completed I started to find more information, mainly photographs and realised I'd have to make a bigger book to accommodate all this new information! So I did. Below are a couple of photos of the resulting scrapbook which includes a pocket to hold the original booklet and page after page reference pictures, not only of Chindits but the Burma campaign as whole; Merrills Marauders, 1st Air Commando, Natives, Aircraft, Strongholds etc, etc. Its amazing what you can find on the 'net when you take the time to look! This will be a valuable addition to my reference library for future projects that I hope to pursue. Watch this space. Matt
