Quick Reference

The Forgotten Army the British army in Burma after the fall of Rangoon in 1942 and the evacuation west, and the subsequent cutting by the Japanese of the supply link from India to Nationalist China, said to derive from Lord Louis Mountbatten's encouragement to his troops after taking over as supreme Allied commander in South-East Asia, ‘You are not the Forgotten Army—no one's even heard of you.’

the Forgotten Man a phrase coined by William Graham Sumner in a speech at Yale University in 1885, in which he said, ‘The forgotten man works and votes—generally he prays—but his chief business in life is to pay…Who and where is the forgotten man in this case, who will have to pay for it all?’ The term was later used by Franklin Roosevelt.
