Would it be possible to have a copy of these articles on Force K6? Happy to make a donation. I run a Website on 70th Infantry Brigade in which these units feature.

My Mother in Law (now 90) was a child at Rogart School during the war and she well remembers the Indian troops. I wonder would it be possible to have a copy of the pdf for her as she often talks about this.
- I have emailed a copy of the PDF to you - Administrator
