Those listed below applied, and gained membership of the Burma Star Assosication.

The Burma Star Memorial Fund is a registered charity (number 1109753) and was established in 2005. It exists to allow the legacy of the Burma Star veterans to live on and to continue to be commemorated. The Memorial Fund focuses on the remembrance aspect of the Burma Campaign and will ensure that those who served in the Campaign will never be forgotten. It is connected to the Burma Star Association which was set up in 1951 to relieve hardship or distress among the men and women who served in HM and Allied Forces or the Nursing Services in the Burma Campaign of the 1939-1945 war or who were otherwise entitled to be holders of the Burma Star or Pacific Star with Burma clasp and for their widows, widowers or dependents.

The Memorial Fund runs a Burma Star Academic and Military Awards programme. The Burma Star award recipients study in fields related to the Burma Campaign. Our plan is to draw scholars from around the world who, like the 14th Army, are excited by the thought that the world can be a better place.

The Burma Star memorial grove at the National Memorial Arboretum in Staffordshire provides a tangible place for those who wish to reflect and remember Burma Star holders throughout the year. A service of remembrance is held at the Grove each year in May to commemorate those who died in the Burma campaign. Wreath laying ceremonies are also held by the Memorial Fund at the memorials to Lord Louis Mountbatten and Field Marshal Slim in September of each year in London.
