    Kolkata, July 10 (Anand Bazar Patrika)- The last known living Indian officer of Free India Legion of Nazi Germany's Waffen-SS has passed away due to old age in Kolkata. He was 98 years old.

    Brojo Lal Mukherji born in Kolkata in May 1920, joined the British Indian Army in 1939 and was captured in Dunkirk by Germans in 1940 and soon joined a German army unit for Indian POWs along with nearly 4000 other Indians, the unit was up in assistance with Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose.

    Along with his unit he participated in combat in Normandy against advancing allied armies in 1944.
    The same year he was promoted to SS-Obersturmf├╝hrer (First Lieutenant).

    After the Germany surrendered, most Indians soldiers on the axis side in Europe escaped to Switzerland but soon got deported to India at the insistence of British authorities and had to serve short jail sentences.

    After India's independence, Mr. Mukherji shifted his career to banking and retired as a General Manager in the state run UCO bank.

    He is survived by two sons, five grandchildren and a great granddaughter.

    The Indian Legion was the European counterpart of the Azad Hind Fauj (based in Asia) . It was Subhash Chandra Bose's aim that the Indian legion would invade and liberate British India from the western flank and the Azad Hind Fauj would do the same from the Eastern flank thereby opening two fronts. Of course they did manage to capture Imphal.

    Germany's reverses in Africa and putting Rommel to death ended the whole Western front idea.

    and Japanese toyota trucks?

    The intelligentsia circulated only mentioned the use of Indian and Israeli tech by ISIS.

    and i am sorry that Indians are so ignorant in your books but there is rampant antisemitism in India.
