A unit of Bengal Sappers and Miners repairing a road near Tamu, 1944

Photograph, World War Two, Far East, 1944.

Bengal Sappers and Miners attempting to maintain the Palel-Tamu Road during the monsoon. There were few proper roads in Burma's mountainous and jungle-clad terrain, so any passable route was a vital logistics link. The Tamu Road ran from Imphal to Kalewa and was developed from a mule track into a two-way 'semi-all-weather' route.

One of 68 photographs collected for the history of 23rd Indian Division.
