Holiday in Thailand

Bridge over the River KwaiA few years ago, we booked a two-week tour of Thailand and visited Kanchanaburi, where so many prisoners-of-war had lost their lives. The film, Bridge on the River Kwai, had made the place famous, and we longed to visit the museum and walk over the infamous structure. We embarked on the train to the border of Burma and back. Even though the scenery was beautiful, I could only think of the thousands of prisoners working and dying daily during the war.
In silence, we walked over the bridge, which had been re-built after it was destroyed by Allied bombs. My brother, Rupert, was taken away by the Japs as forced labour when he was only thirteen. He could’ve been among those who died here, but he escaped and returned home. His friend’s body lies buried somewhere near the railroad.
