Photograph, World War Two, Far East (1941-1945), 1944.

Calvert was one of the finest officers to serve with the Chindits. He always led from the front and his bravery in combat earned him the nickname 'Mad Mike'. The capture of Mogaung was one of his greatest achievements, but the bitter struggle there cost his 77th Brigade half its strength either killed or wounded during the four-week battle.

From a collection of Burma campaign relics, including 285 photographs, formed by Mr R Moffat, World War Two, Far East, 1939-1945.
