#OnThisDay 1943: The first Chindit operation in Burma – Operation ‘Longcloth’ – begins. In September 1942, the Indian 14th Division launched a failed campaign to recapture the Arakan coastal plain in western Burma. The Japanese put up a strong resistance and the campaign fizzled out after a series of setbacks and retreats early in 1943. With the failure of this offensive, British Brigadier Orde Wingate was given permission to mount a long-range raid behind Japanese lines. This became Operation 'Longcloth'. The Chindits suffered high casualties and much of the damage they inflicted on Japanese rail communications was rapidly repaired. But the operation delivered a much-needed boost to demoralised Allied troops. Image © IWM (IND 2078)

    Genealogy, 2014 - present
    "The Correspondence Course in Genealogy was launched in 1961 and has been growing in popularity ever since. Students tell us that they find the course to be great value for money, being significantly less expensive than other distance learning courses with comparable academic content. The lecture material is excellent and the individual tutorial guidance is first-rate. Unlike other courses that have come and gone during the last four decades, the Correspondence Course in Genealogy encourages the student to apply the subject material to his or her own personal research. Our students also speak of the fun and enjoyment of following the course and how it has helped them to get over apparently insurmountable research problems. The course is continually assessed with all assignments graded. Those students wishing to take the Higher Certificate in Genealogy examination may opt to have their grades for assignments put forward instead of taking the second paper. The course, which is suitable both for beginners and for experienced genealogists, is also designed to prepare students for professional genealogical practice. As such it covers the full range of genealogically useful sources to considerable depth. This also makes it the best available course for those simply tracing their own families as a hobby, ensuring that they have the best knowledge base so that their research is as good as it can be. The Correspondence Course is both challenging and demanding, but the principal qualifications for embarking on it are enthusiasm and dedication."
