"A remarkable and wonderful film." 
- Joanna Lumley OBE, award-winning broadcaster, actor and activist

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, and the broadcast premiere was via History in September 2019. You can read more about the project on BBC News and The Daily Mail (UK).
