It’s 1945, Burma, the day the war is over! For many this means they’ve survived and will be going home. But not for everyone. A Scottish soldier, Corporal Lachlan “Lachie” MacLachlan is the victim of a wound to the lower back on this day. He’s moved to a M.A.S.H. unit and undergoes surgery. As time goes by he begins to recover and watches, in dismay as soldiers pack up and head for home. The doctors have told him he needs to remain “for observation”.
