Correspondence with UK's 'Political, Military and Media Elite'



Hon. Mark Slim - 15 May 2014
Chairman of Trustees

Dear Slim,

Battle of Yenangyaung

The Viscount of your clan advises me to “Shut Up”, in a letter which I reproduce in my recent third book, ‘Chinese Save Brits – in Burma’.

I was involved in the spectacular Chinese action on 19th April 1942, four days prior to my Commanding the execution of 27 recalcitrant and hostile oilfield operatives. At this point, with my unit discarded by Churchill from 1st April, - (See his signal to Roosevelt), I usurped a diffident CO in the interest of saving my own life, and was fortunate to be involved and witness the excellent Chinese operation.

The British through Thatcher, Major, Blair, Brown, and the present incompetent, Cameron, along with Willy (TV) Hague, and a series the likes of Hammond, - ‘The men are having to bathe in bottled water’, - such discomfort! Dannart: - ‘We must win; we will win!’ (They are licked). Blair: - ‘Weapons of Mass Destruction’ – Should be hung! All discount my story. Without labouring, please appreciate my interest in recognizing Chinese action, as contained in the attached.

The Slim I knew, (Artillery and enfilade), was converted to ‘Chinese style’ jungle tactics, at Ranchi Battle School. He called me Fitz! I called him Sir! He was what I am pleased to call a great British Army General. There were few, and many with whom I served were absolute trash! Starting with Churchill: - (Alexander, Smyth VC, Wavell, Mountbatten and Montgomery, amongst others).

It is in disgust that I write to you: - Will you be kind enough as to return the enclosed items to the delicate BS office? Thank you!

The enclosed bit of documentation may interest you: my wife and I (aged 95) have recently visited Hong Kong, and for a second time, due in Taiwan next month. The documents record the appreciation of Chinese colleagues, along with fellow author, XXXX XXXXX, appraisal of my book.

Happy? Thank you for your time.

Dear Katy

Thank you for the undated, ‘Editorial office – Senior Editor’, rejection note, received recently. May I suggest? My offering of 15th February, possibly, teeters on damnation of a prominent relation of an influential member of your staff. As an officer in the British Army, in the forlorn, discarded Burma campaign of 1942, it took thirty years to release from secrecy, the damnation of me. It is contained in Churchill’s All Fools Day, (1st April 1942, signal to USA, President Roosevelt. Obviously written in a drunken stupor, and unable to retrieve, the disgusting rogue had the ‘missile’ secreted away for thirty years.

“Speaking as one amateur to another, my feeling is that the wisest stroke for Japan could be to press on through Burma northwards into China and try to make a job of that. They may disturb India but I doubt its serious invasion.”

On 19th April I co-operated with the excellent Chinese Army, and it was 23rd April May before my departing Burma: - Eight weeks without provisions of any kind?

The truth I tell is appropriate for the xxxx generation, and appreciated by others: - As we see: - my wife, Patricia, and I are invited for a second time, to visit Taiwan, and for the first time, Hong Kong, in May and June this year. Speaking to more than five hundred specially invited guests, with press and all media present, I shall not fail to mention your Magazine rejection, along with continuing indifference shown by the Thatcher clan: - Cameron, Hague and Hammond, and their predecessors.

A little less caustic, I am forwarding a second offering. It contains detail of recent activity. The whole story is contained in my recently published third book: - “Chinese Save Brits – In Burma”. Leaflets are enclosed, and I feel xxxx xxxxxx would appreciate your buying her a copy, or lead her to eBooks.

Please have a look at my accompanying mild offering, attached.

Thank you
Yours sincerely

Dear Katy

Following your ‘Senior Editor’ rejection of my recent letter, to which I scorn to reply, I trust that the one below tones the job down a little. May I submit the following for publication in xxxx Magazine?

In the nine years following the 2001 publication of my first book: - “No Mandalay, No Maymyo”, I received numerous approaches containing news, and relevant information, confirming detail contained within the book, along with surprising features that were never revealed to troops involved in the hiatus that was the Burma campaign of 1942.

Surprise beyond all else, was a letter received on 6th August 2012 from a lady in Washington DC. She stated that her father was General Liu Fang-Wu, of the Chinese Army Expeditionary Force in Burma 1942, and that he commanded Chinese 113 Regiment. It was the superb force I met with at the Central Burma Oilfield on 19th April 1942, in what became known as: - “The Battle of Yenangyaung”. The disgust of British un-acceptance of this action is contained in my recent book.

Writing to thank the lady would have been inadequate; she had to hear the words, - “Thank you” from my lips. At the cost of approx.. £4,000, my wife, Patricia, and I flew to Washington. I would have been satisfied to say “Thank you” and return on the same plane. We did however stay for one week, as guests of the family.

Amongst the surprises on the visit, we were received by the Ambassador of the Republic of China, - (Taiwan), and presented with the prestigious Government Centennial Plate. (This is now shown on the front cover of my recently published book, “Chinese Save Brits – In Burma”).

Resulting from the Washington “Thank You” visit, we were invited ‘As Government guests’ to Taiwan March 2013. It was magnificent luxury every inch of the way: - Business class flights, Five Star hotel, State limousine flying two flags, and five attendant staff, and because of my age at 94, including a doctor.

(The ‘Martyr’s Shrine is, every bit, comparable to India’s Taj Mahal, and treatment of military service veterans is on a level unknown to Britain).

An initial order for six hundred copies of, “Chinese Save Brits – In Burma” has been dispatched to America, and is being ‘restrictively’ translated into Chinese for the military in Taiwan, and negotiations are in hand for release commercially.

Almost beyond belief, Patricia and I have busy days ahead, in May and June: - with a second invitation to Taiwan, and a further one to Hong Kong.

There now!

Yours sincerely

Gerald Fitzpatrick

Mr D Cameron – PM - 06 March 2014
Downing Street

Mr Cameron,

As your beloved colleague, George Mudie MP says: - “I have been in the House of Commons for twenty years, and I do not trust Governments”. “We all know as politicians, how secure was our database? What damage it did. It killed people, and imprisoned people”. “Do not trust the government!” – Well done, George!*

J Bandy, of MOD (03. G. 19) repeats procrastination similar to that of my many approaches to you and your chums, in his replying to Ms Anna Huai-Wang: - my newfound friend and charming Chinese researcher. It is clear that all Bandy’s nebulous ilk, in camouflaged occupations, remain there to ‘shadow the truth’.

Do not tell Anna or me to read books, and phoney British documents, ones manufactured by Military Seniors, in order to hide, or obscure, shortcomings and failures of their own making: - (As with KOYLI history, pages 196-234): - Also Alexander’s 6th March 1942, (“Burma cannot be saved” – capitulation), also his memoirs VII (“Chinese never attacked Japs”), - along with Churchill’s 1st April 1942 signal to Roosevelt, (Wisest plan for japan – press on through Burma”), Miss Huai-Wang knows from me; the man on the ground: exactly what happened as the Chinese Army demolished the Japanese at Yenangyaung Oilfield, on 19th April 1942.

It is “Beyond Hypocrisy” that in 1992, in Washington DC, fifty years after the event: - Thatcher and Rifkind, meeting with General Liu Fang-Wu, glibly thanked him for rescuing British Troops at the Battle of Yenangyaung: - (see the attached photo of Rifkind’s, palpable, deceitful citation, engraved on the campaign memorial).

King George VI, decorated General Liu with a BCE, (possibly CBE?) also honoured him, and other Chinese Army officers, with medals.

Now Prime Minister! Will you, Hague and Hammond, along with Rifkind, acknowledge, and thank the excellent Chinese for their superb 19th APRIL 1942 action, at the Yenangyaung Oilfield: - I joined and witnessed the whole event, and require no decoration from you! I am honoured by the Republic of China – (Taiwan).

My wife and I are invited to Hong Kong in the near future. I shall certainly confirm my part in the Chinese operation and detail my, and colleague Vic Stevens, joyous meeting with the Chinese force. ‘Steve’ bandaged wounded Chinese troops!

Thank you George Mudie, I needed this, and almost regret our previous meeting.

PM! Please reply before I visit Hong Kong: - failure is “Beyond Hypocrisy!”

Yours sincerely

Mr D Cameron – 15 February 2014
Prime Minister

Mr Cameron

Recognition – Chinese Armed Forces: – Burma 1942

The attached, 30th January copy, from the Direct Communications Unit’ reflects, as Hague says; ‘Beyond Hypocrisy’, Government disinterest in true facts.

See the attached letter from Lt. Gen. – Han Gan-Sen, Deputy Chief of the General Staff, Republic of China – (Taiwan), Ministry of National Defence: - It is unique, and treasured by me, above anything the British Government could bestow.

I am asking now, that on behalf of the British Government, you express overdue acknowledgement and thanks, to the Government of China, for the relentless contribution made by their splendid Army Force, at the Yenangyaung oilfield, on 19th April 1942. The magnificent action was witnessed by me.

Already discarded by Churchill in his, 1st April 1942, signal to Roosevelt: -
“I think the wisest plan for Japan is to press on through Burma”.
Commanded by incompetent, cowardly British Generals, I survived the most arduous Burma 1942 campaign, of World War Two.

Debilitated, through lack of food, ammunition and medical: on 19th April, as a British Army Officer, (2/KOYLI), I witnessed the magnificent Chinese Army attack at Yenangyaung oilfield in Central Burma. They demolished and devastated the Japanese enemy, releasing amongst others, captive Inniskilling Fusiliers.

The Chinese Force was saviour of the discarded British Army in Burma. British success came two years later, with an equipped and better trained force.

Now in my 95th year, I have written three published books, all detail circumstances of my British Army service. They are available, including e-book.
The recent one: - Chinese Save Brits – In Burma, was released in 2013.

Please advise me of your favourable response to Chinese authorities.

Yours sincerely

G Fitzpatrick – Former Captain KOYLI
GSO III (Operations) HQ BAOR (GEN Brian Horrocks)

D CameronW Hague – P Hammond - 20 November 2013
PRIME / FOREIGN / DEFENCE MINISTERS of Complete Indifference,

You all succeed, and now mirror the filth that was Churchill and Thatcher. Attempting to belittle and patronize me, in the above quoted insipid reply to my copy of the letter to St Clair Preston, of 24/10/2013, and forwarded to you for attention.

            NOW READ MY BOOK – “CHINESE SAVE BRITS – in BURMA”.
GREAT CHRISTMAS GIFT
ALL RANKS AND TOP MANAGEMENT

My action in approaching you is on behalf of men long dead, to recognize and appreciate their valour, in view of Churchill’s treachery and indifferent Commanders.

The disregard of a magnificent Chinese Army action on 19/04/1942 in their releasing Inniskilling’s, and saving me and the British Army, in Burma 1942, is unforgiveable, in Chinese eyes and remains a blot on Britain. Do something, in view of Churchill’s ‘discard of Burma’ signal, of 01/04/1942, to F D Roosevelt: -

“I feel the wisest plan for Japan is to press on through Burma”.
  1. As a junior officer, fully aware of possible consequences, and aware of there being no redress: - on 19/04/1942, I usurped the dithering Battalion Commander.
  2.  IMMEDIATELY, with not one moment’s notice. I led 20 men in the first singular attack on a Japanese held road block. My colleague, Victor Stevens, bandaged and fed wounded Chinese soldiers, along with released Inniskilling’s: - (Sgt McHaffrey, later Major, was captured a second time).
  3. Debilitated through starvation, and short of ammunition, I witnessed the most excellent pageantry of formation, and assault, made by the magnificent Chinese Army in the Battle of Yenangyaung, (19/04/1942). They crushed the Japanese!
  4. On 23/04/1942, I commanded the execution of 27, (twenty-seven), recalcitrant and hostile Burmese oilfield workers, at the stockade village of Taungtha. The comment, “I want no part of this”, was made by titular commander, Chadwick.
  5. 24/10/1984 Thatcher used Scotland Yard, Serious Crime Squad, (Det/Chief Supt Hardy, and Det/Stg Tovey), to subdue revelations made to, ‘The Observer’, (Editors Threlfall/Howard),  by me, and vilely distorted in their 03/06/1984 issue.

I seek no British decoration. I am honoured by the Government of the Republic of China – Taiwan. However, so many others of the disaster of Churchill’s 1942 Burma discard, simply want you to say: - “Thank you for your service”.

Do it, and Do it now!

Yours never obediently,

“I feel the wisest plan for Japan is to press on through Burma”.


  1. As a junior officer, fully aware of possible consequences, and aware of there being no redress: - on 19/04/1942, I usurped the dithering Battalion Commander.
  2. Same day. I led 20 men in the first singular attack on a Japanese held road block. My colleague, Victor Stevens, bandaged and fed wounded Chinese soldiers, along with released Inniskilling’s: - (Sgt McHaffrey was later captured a second time).

Do it, and Do it now!

Yours never obediently,

Brigadier Roger St. Clair Preston, CBE - 24 October 2013

KOYLI assembly York 12th October 2013

Roger St. Clair,
Having simmered for a while, it is hard to be polite, and I can’t lower myself to using the most suitable words for your actions in denying me speech at our meeting in York. You and your ilk assume authority of days long gone, few would have anything to say, and accept bogus reports and inventive lies of the desultory British armed forces, in National and Regimental historical recordings.

My reaction to your type of infested leadership, confirmed to me by my former platoon member, Cecil (Chris) Cockliff, is illustrated in my recently published book “Chinese Save Brits – in Burma”. With no former reason to assess individuals, I now realize that throughout my service with KOYLI, I met with only one commander of consequence: - The remainder were such rubbish that, fully aware of the possible consequences I usurped Chadwick in Burma, the third and dithering Battalion Commander, in a vulnerable situation: - CO Keegan was wounded, flouting himself in front of the enemy. Replacement Tynte (Cameronian), lasted only minutes when he foolishly and single handed attacked a Japanese held road-block.

From 19th April to 23 May 1942; along with colleague Victor Stevens, I commanded 2nd Bn KOYLI in Burma. My initial attack on the Japanese was the first British assault upon an enemy held position. Here I met with the superb Chinese Army assault force, their attack on the enemy was instantaneous: - Abdicated by Alexander on day one of his command, and discarded by Churchill, in his 1/4/1942 signal to Roosevelt; - “I feel the wisest move for Japan is to press on through Burma”. It was secreted away for thirty years; - Much later, Thatcher used Scotland Yard, Serious Crime Squad, (Supt Hardy and Sgt Tovey), to kill the story. Her series of successors, to Cameron, along with Hammond, and Hague, show complete apathy.

Indifferent to British Military Law, I commanded the execution of 27 hostile Burmese oil-men. You and your insipid clique of ‘Regulars’ freeze at the thought, as did Battalion Commander Chadwick, a time served superior, whimpering the words “I want no part of this”, accepting his overthrow: - ‘The Observer’ newspaper management Threlfall/Howard, in seeking headlines, evilly distorted my given truth.

You fall in the same category as Slim, the pompous Viscount son of the competent Slim I knew: - My observations on the man, along with the photocopy of his pathetic 1984 letter, suits you, and your patronizing kind, most admirably.

Four days prior to your reprehensible attempt to belittle me, I addressed more than 400 guests at a prestigious Republic of China – Taiwan national gathering. This followed my wife, Patricia, and I (now aged 94), being invited, and honoured, ‘As guests of the Government’, to visit Taiwan, and be treated equivalent to Royals, and accepting a singular Audience with the ROC’s most delightful President.

Yours most sincerely

MrJim Murphy MP – 15 September 2013
Shadow Defence Minister

Mr Murphy,

‘Thatcher Babe’, and foreign office-boy, Hague, has apologized to the Kenya Government for questionable action, undertaken in the Mau Mau war, and is about to attempt recompensing casualties.

Please get him to go further, and apologise to the Government of Myanmar (Burma), for the unfortunate twenty seven (27) Burmese workmen, dispatched under my Command, at Taungtha, on 23rd April 1942. I can show him exactly where three piles of nine men were dumped.

The shot oilfield workers were obviously proud Burmese men. As would be the British in similar circumstances; - They rebelled at the destruction of their workplace, as for eleven days, we of the debilitated, and virtually unarmed, 2nd Bn KOYLI assisted oilfield management in destroying the Central Burma oilfields, situated at Yenangyaung and Chauk. On completion and escape, management were escorted several miles north. Several unfortunates did not survive the final journey.

Recalcitrance and rebelling was tolerated: - It was when the workmen acquired arms, and became hostile, attempting to shoot up our departure; - Things changed. Walking alongside me, Corporal ‘Gigger’ Lee, was shot in the side. Rounding the men up at Taungtha, I ordered their demise; - Of strategic and prudent necessity at the time, they were shot by the three Company Commanders, nine each.

Once Hague pacifies the Government of Burma, get him to go round to the Chinese and apologise to them, for his ‘Beyond Hypocrisy’ indifference towards their astounding performance, witnessed by me, in defeating the Japanese in the Battle of Yenangyaung, on 19 April 1942: - They rescued many Inniskilling Fusiliers, (British Troops) from captivity, in the town on Yenangyaung.

Specific detail of all action is contained in my two books, shown below.
Aged 94, I shall be pleased to help you further should you so wish.

Yours sincerely

Mr W Hague 15 May 2013
Minister for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs
House of Commons

Dear William

I feel sure, you remember the two letters I sent, prior to my visit to Taiwan, and the two further letters sent since my return: - all were ignored!

As recently as Monday 13th May, I attended the meeting shown in the attached notification, at which over 150 relevant personal attended, and had the pleasure of meeting with your colleague, Andrew Roisindell. It could however, be, - ‘Beyond Hypocrisy’, - He appeared to show an interest in the happenings.

Prior to conducting the business of the meeting, the Chairman introduced me to all present: - His words expressed, and proclaimed, the same as those used profusely, throughout the Taiwan visit: - They result from my cooperation with the Republic of China Army, at the 19th April 1942, Battle of Yenangyaung’: -
“We have with us a 94 year old Hero of the Burma war!”

I was asked to stand, and received rapturous accord from all round, as I requested, and was granted permission to address the audience.

“Twice before my visit to Taiwan, and twice since, I have written to a man called Hague, who ‘reputedly’ works in this building, and received not one satisfactory reply”: - Rapturous applause!

Not the least amused by this, your colleague, Roisindell, took details, and copies of letters stating, that he would pursue the matter. Lord Lyndon Harrison, of Chester, expressed surprise.

My regard, and cynicism of Parliamentarians, was formed, at the conduct of Defence Minister, Manny Shinwell, and his shadow ‘Opposition’, when functioning, after the Burma skirmish, as GSO III (Operations) B.A.O.R. in 1948.

Please come down to earth, from dancing in front of the barrage of television cameras, read my forthcoming book; - “Chinese Save Brits – in Burma”, - (out in late July), and answer your findings to a Yorkshire-man.

Yours most graciously,

G Fitzpatrick

Mr William Hague MP - 21 April 2013
British Minister for Foreign Affairs

Dear Mr Hague

‘Beyond Hypocrisy’, my rather terse letter to you, of 11th April, appears to have been ignored, as have numerous previous ones to you, and your colleagues. However, I do not stop, and feel that at some point, you may relent, and recognize a valiant action undertaken by a Chinese Army Force, in World War – Two.

What credibility the British Government, Foreign Attaché, Chris Wood carries, must be greatly suspect, in his operating within (Taiwan), Republic of China. Exasperated or not, Chris Wood was present amongst guests, at my distinguished audience with ROC President, Ying-Jeou Ma. It was here that I was embarrassingly, declared “A Hero of the Republic”, and presented with appropriate, although unexpected, decoration.

The ‘pageantry’ of the ROC Army approach, and assault, at the Battle of Yenangyaung, on 19th April 1942, along with my own contribution to the desperate operation, after being incommunicado for 11/12 days, is related in my 2001 book, “No Mandalay, No Maymyo”: - The book is so accurately detailed, and my Taiwan friends have no doubt about its validity. Please refer back to my letter of 11th April, it illustrates indifferent Government individuals, and their shortcomings.

 Without some response from you, I remain reluctant to forward my thanks to the wonderful dignitaries, honouring me, and my wife, in the most memorable visit made recently, to Taiwan ROC.

Although I had success in serving; - at the age of 93, (94 on 10th August), I find shame in having served in the British Army: - A reply will be welcome?

Yours faithfully 

G Fitzpatrick

Mr Hague – 11 April 2013
Foreign Minster

Dear Mr Hague

Having read my 2001 published book, ‘No Mandalay, No Maymyo’, in which I describe the Chinese Army Expeditionary Force action, in their rescuing abandoned British troops at the Central Burma oilfield, at Yenangyaung, on 19th April 1942, I am approached by the Washington based daughter of the Chinese General officer, Commanding the Burma operation. She gives me names and Regiments.

As a result of this, my wife, Patricia, and I, are invited as ‘Guests of the Government’, to visit the Republic of China, Taiwan, in the near future.

Unaware of any situation, and before travelling, I would appreciate your guidance over the formal relationship between Britain and Taiwan.

I look forward to receiving your reply,

Yours sincerely


G Fitzpatrick
