During the Second World War one of the largest British Commonwealth armies ever assembled fought the Japanese in South-east Asia, first on the border between what was then British India and Burma and then pushing deeper into Burma itself. Supporting the Fourteenth Army were an intrepid group of women known colloquially as the Wasbies – the Women’s Auxiliary Service (Burma) or WAS(B).
Our speaker Elizabeth Lockhart-Mure is the neice of Maria Pilbrow, one of six Wasbies to be appointed MBE after the war, and is the author of a book based on her aunt’s diaries.
