Can anybody shed any light on "C.B.I. Depot" at Bangalore ? Is this a concentration depot similar to that at Deolali ?
What was it ? and what was the number of the depot ?
Appreciate any insights.
C. B. I was a WW2 abbreviation for China Burma India Theatre/Theater. There was indeed a CBI Depot in Bangalore from 1942 - 1945 which supported the operations to fly supplies to China "over the hump". I think it was mainly an American Army Airforce site that serviced DC3s and the like.
