Saraburi, Thailand. September 1945. Korean guards, members of the Japanese Imperial Army, lined up for an identification parade. The Koreans were amongst the most brutal of the guards encountered by Allied prisoners of war (POWs) working on the Burma-Thailand railway. After the Japanese surrender, identification parades were held of possible war criminals where former POWs would identify,for the Allied authorities, Japanese soldiers who had committed atrocities.
