Burma or Thailand. 1945. The feet of an Allied prisoner of war (POW) suffering from beri-beri. In this case his feet are badly swollen, making standing and walking very painful. A disease caused by vitamin deficiency, beri-beri was rife due to the meagre diet provided by the Japanese. (Donor B. Theobald)
