The statue is located in Victoria Embankment amongst the many statues, tributes and memorials for those who have contributed greatly tot he United Kingdom. The Chindit special forces where named after the mythical Chinthe, a kind of guardian often seen at the entrances of pagodas and temples in Burma. The sculpture of the chinthe sits atop a 4 metre high plinth. On the front of the plinth is the Chindit badge worn my the unit, and around the plinth is inscribed the names of the members of the unit awarded Vitoria Crosses, as well as the names of the units that made up the Chidits.
