Wampo (Wang Po), Thailand. c. September 1945. The Wampo tiered viaduct built along the edge of the Kwai Noi River. The two main viaducts followed the bottom of the cliff for some distance. A ledge had to be carved out of the cliff face to form a base for the bridge and embankment construction. It was a dangerous and exhausting task for the POW work force. Wampo is approximately 114 kilometres north of Nong Pladuk (also known as Non Pladuk), or 300 kilometres south of Thanbyuzayat. (Donor A. Mackinnon)
