 Chindit Insignias

The name Chindits was chosen by General Orde Wingate in 1942 during the training of his experimental Long Range Penetration force. The name was derived from the Burmese word Chinthe.

The Chinthe is a mythical creature, half lion, half dragon and are guardians of Burmese pagodas. Their statues stand guard outside the entrance of pagodas of Burma. 

The Chindit shoulder badge consists of a yellow Chinthe next to small yellow pagoda on a blue or black background. It comes in either yellow cotton or gold bullion. The shoulder title is curved with the word Chindit on it, in white or yellow cotton with a rope border on blue or black background.
