To Calum Edmond,

I am replying to your query for a lost person, which I saw on the Britain-Burma Society's Lost Relatives web page (http://shwepla.net/Misspers.mv). You said:


Im wondering if anyone can shed any light on my deceased uncle.

From what I know he was Chief Engineer at the Yenangyaung Oilfields, he worked for Indo Burmah Petroleum Company. We never knew until now that he was stationed there for an incredible 15 YEARS!

Sadly he died on the last day of the battle of Yenangyaung and is interred at Taukkan Military Cemetery. We alos know he was decorated with a 'mentioned in dispatches'. We do not know what for, perhaps for blowing up the oilfield, nor do we know how he died. We also wonder from the fact that he spent 15 yrs in Burma, if he had any family there? It would be amazing if we discovered a new family! His Name was John Edmond, my grandfather's brother. He was stationed as a reserve of Officer's for the British Army in Burma. He also travelled to India and China, hence why we still have some mementos from his visits.

Hope anyone can draw some interesting insights
