Burma Star Ceremony – August 14, 2019 at 1:00 p.m.
The Burma Campaign took place between December 11, 1941 and September 2, 1945, commencing with Japanese forces invading Burma and driving British forces back to the Indian border. Since the Japanese held superiority in the Pacific, the Allies were not in a position to strike back and regain a foothold in Burma until early in 1944. Total surrender of the Japanese came on September 2, 1945.
The Burma Star was instituted by the United Kingdom in May 1945 for award to those who had served in operations in the Burma Campaign from December 11, 1941 to September 2, 1945
Please join the Royal Canadian Legion 53 (Duncan) to remember those who courageously earned this notable award.
