Forgotten Allies


In the darkest hours of World War 2, thousands of men from Burma gave their lives fighting a brutal war for Britain against the Japanese, and to carry out the most successful guerrilla campaign of the war. But after the Allied victory, Burma sank into isolation, dictatorship and civil war, and Britain forgot the bravery of these men.

Now only a handful of veterans remain - will they get the recognition they deserve before it's too late? One determined band of Brits are in a battle against time to make sure they do.

The production of Forgotten Allies to date was made possible by the support of our logistical partner Sampan Travel. The post-production was made possible by a crowd-funding campaign backed by people from all around the world.

The world premiere was held at the National Army Museum on June 12th 2019. It will be broadcast on the History Channel in the UK later in 2019. You can read more about the project on BBC News, The Times (UK) and The Daily Mail (UK).

Forgotten Allies will be broadcast on History Channel (UK) from September 27th 2019. Find out more.
