Greetings to all. I am starting up this thread to give all of us a chance to put down a day-to-day account on what was happening in the PTO & CBI. As I just mentioned, this is ONLY for events that occurred in the PTO, CBI, Indian Ocean and key events in the allied home fronts. As such please refrain from posting any details from the the war in the Atlantic and Europe. All are welcome to add information. Since I will be the primary contributor and create the days, please send me a PM with your stuff. If you create the day (and it has to be in chronological order), you will be responsible to make sure any information gets posted to it. We don't want to waste our beloved moderators time in asking them to "please ask mr. simpson to update his post". Some guidelines: Use brevity. We dont need a 16 paragraph accounting on a battle, when it can be done in a parapgraph or two, and followed up with some links. Everything is important. Even mentioning that your great grandfather arrived in India as part of the engineering battalion he was with is fine by me.
