Curtis, Alfred Cyril (1894-1971)

Curtis commanded 13 Indian Brigade in the first Burma campaign. Slim recounts that Curtis was slightly wounded in a Japanese strafing attack that killed the driver of Curtis' car, but Curtis was completely unshaken. This was one of the most impressive displays of nerve Slim ever witnessed. Curtis went on to command 14 Indian Division, which by then had become a training division for replacement troops for 14 Army.
