Burma or Thailand. 1945. An emaciated cholera patient in one of the prisoner of war (POW) hospitals. Cholera epidemics, particularly in the wet season, raged among all the workers on the Burma-Thailand railway and were responsible for many Allied POW deaths and thousands of deaths among the native labourers.
