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).

Elizabeth Lockhart-Mure’s aunt, Maria Pilbrow was one of six Wasbies to receive an MBE. After Maria’s death, the discovery of her diary led Elizabeth to tell the extraordinary story of this forgotten army.
