David,
Lawrence Arthur

L.A. David

His ex daughter-in-law writes: "Born in Burma to a British family. He was a dispatch rider before he was offered a commission. He recieved a significant medal because his CO was shot by a sniper on parade, and he assumed command and kept the rest of the men from being shot too. He was in a communications unit and used to tell stories of crossing the Irriwaddy River many times to keep the communications open. After the razing of Rangoon he was sent to Singapore to recover, but was then redeployed back to Burma to help provide rations to the local people because he spoke the local language. After being decommissioned he returned to his family in England where they had been evacuated to, but soon after emigrated to Australia."
