The Burma Star Memorial Fund charity is dedicated to the benevolence, remembrance and legacy of those who served in the Allied Forces during the Burma Campaign of WWII.

To research an association member go to our archive and then contact the relevant service/unit/regiment and also request details through www.gov.uk/get-copy-military-service-records .

Recent times have seen significant change at BSMF and the charity is currently revising and reviewing all its activity. We are very happy to hear from anyone with a connection to the Burma Campaign and help us create a long standing legacy. Contact admin@burmastar.org.uk .

THE BIG IDEA - THE FIVE STEPS

01
WE ARE CREATING A BURMA STAR SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAMME IN PARTNERSHIP WITH UNIVERSITY COLLEGE LONDON.
02
THESE SCHOLARSHIPS WILL FORM A LASTING LEGACY FOR THE GALLANT VETERANS OF THE 14TH ARMY.
03
THE SCHOLARSHIPS WILL BE AVAILABLE TO CITIZENS OF ANY OF THE ALLIED NATIONS THAT CONTRIBUTED TO THE BURMA CAMPAIGN.
04
WE WANT TO FUND FOURTEEN SCHOLARSHIPS IN HONOUR OF THE 14th ARMY, WITH A LONG-TERM GOAL OF FUNDING AN ENDOWED SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAMME THAT WILL CONTINUE IN PERPETUITY.
05
WE ARE SEEKING SIGNIFICANT FUNDING FROM FOUNDATIONS AND PHILANTHROPISTS TO SUPPORT THIS NEW BURMA STAR SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAMME.
