What happened to Major General John Grover at Kohima? 

by Lieutenant Colonel Gordon Graham MC and Bar

 

KET Trustee Dr Robert Lyman's blog "The War Room" includes this piece written by KET founder Gordon Graham:

I found it in a pile of my notes and thought readers would like to hear what he had discovered."
