Having finished publishing letters between my parents, I am wondering if my fathers extensive recollections/ diaries of his time as a junior officer in India in 1943 in the RA and training with the Chindits and his attachment to the Lancashire Fusiliers would be worth publishing. They are too lengthy to put up here and actually stop around the White City battle time.

There is very little written about actual fighting, but much about social attitudes in India at the time, leaves, and many different personalities encountered.

What is astonishing to me is the innocence of men going to war and what is omitted from the account. I have no idea whether it is worth getting it up for people to have a look at. Definitely more of sociological interest than military, and for people looking for mention of relatives.

Anyone think it is worth it?
