Kanchanaburi (Kanburi), Thailand. c. 1945. The prisoner of war (POW) officers' camp showing huts and parade ground. By January 1945 all officers, except some padres and medical officers, were concentrated in this special camp. From June 1945 the Japanese began evacuating these officers to Nakomnayok (Nakom Nayok) north of Bangkok. Kanchanaburi (also known to POWs as Kanburi) is located fifty kilometres north of Nong Pladuk (also known as Non Pladuk), or 364 kilometres south of Thanbyuzayat. (Donor B. Theobald)
