Lost Warriors: Seagrim and Pagani of Burma

Philip Davies tells the story of Major Hugh Seagrim, the ‘T E Lawrence of Burma’.


This talk tells the sensational, but little-known story, of Major Hugh Seagrim, the ‘T.E. Lawrence of Burma’. He volunteered to stay behind the Japanese lines for over two and a half years to raise an army amongst the loyal Karens of eastern Burma. This was one of the most successful guerrilla operations of the Second World War.

It is an intensely human story of honour, courage, love and self-sacrifice in the face of appalling brutality. Its legacy resonates to this day as the diverse peoples of Burma search for a lasting solution to their conflicts.
