Welcome to the website of The Burma Campaign Society (BCS).
The Burma Campaign Society was established in March 2002 to promote understanding of Britain and Japan’s encounter during the Second World War.

BCS organises and encourages research and debate of this wartime encounter and of the consequences of it. This is an initiative of people of different generations, beginning with veterans on both sides. It includes many people who are involved in Anglo-Japanese relations, or are interested in and have connections with Burma, or just those who have an interest in history.
