    Orde Charles Wingate (1903-1944) followed his father into an army career and was accepted into the Royal Military Academy at Woolwich in 1921 under the influence of his father, Sir Reginald Wingate, formerly the Governor-General of Sudan and High Commissioner to Egypt. Orde mounted an expedition to Sudan in 1927 and became a Commander. In 1936 he was assigned to Palestine and felt that it was his religious duty to see the creation of a Jewish state. He became involved with Zionist leaders and formed a squad of British and Haganah volunteers. In 1942 he was assigned to the Far East and established the famous Chindits brigade and was active in Burma and North East India where sadly he died in a plane crash in 1944. To this date Orde Wingate is commemorated in Israel in a number of institutions bearing his name.
