Burma

Asia SECOND WORLD WAR 1939-1945

This pioneering tour offers a unique opportunity to pay Remembrance to those who fell during the 1942-45 Burma campaign.

Many were from the British 14th Army and were awarded more Victoria Crosses than any other Second World War campaign. We pay tribute to troops who secured a vital foothold in the Allied invasion of Burma and the ultimate defeat of the Japanese.

We also offer the opportunity to visit Rangoon with its cemeteries to those who died in Burma. Join us to discover unspoilt, beautiful temples, colourful markets and charming, friendly people.
