Successful bombing raid May 1945 steel bridge, Tamarkan

Below:  Bombing raid of steel bridge Tamakan, Kanachaburi  May 1945.  It was a round trip of about 2500 miles from air bases in India by RAF Liberator aircrafts from Strategic Air Force, Eastern Air Command.  This raid smashed a 600 feet three span girder bridge (600 miles north Singapore) ending the Japanese supply link to Burma and Thailand.

These frequent air-raids unfortunately resulted in POW deaths.
