30th Mountain Regiment on the march, 1943 (c)

Photograph, World War Two, Far East (1941-1945), 1943 (c).

The 30th Regiment was equipped with light mountain guns that could easily be dismantled and transported by mules or men in rough terrain. Mules were essential in Burma as they were often the only form of motive power, other than the soldiers themselves, which could negotiate the jungle.

From an album of 36 photographs compiled by Captain E B Mee (later Major), Royal Signals, 81st West African Division, Burma, 1944-45.
