I've just watched the (rather good) documentary on Ch 5 about the construction of the railway along the River Kwai. It brought home the magnitude of the suffering and endurance of all those PoWs who worked on the railway. I was also not aware that over 90,000 Indians who were indentured labour, Burmese, and Tamils died during construction as they were forced to work on the railways alongside the British, Australian, Dutch, and Americans. In my own way I'd like to pay tribute to all of those who endured that hell on earth of all nationalities. May they rest in peace.
