Death Railway - testament to both man’s capacity for evil and man’s unfailing tenacity and bravery! As the Japanese extended their invasion of Thailand into the West of Burma, their success was hampered by the difficulty in supplying troops with provisions. The answer was a railway and Bridge 277 – the ‘Bridge Over the River Kwai’ as its most famous section. Under orders of the Japanese many thousands of British, Australian, New Zealand, Dutch and American prisoners of war, and enslaved Asian labourers performed Herculean tasks in the face of great odds to construct the 415-kilometre long railway line. A brutal and barbaric work regime saw the railway completed in one year rather than the three it was estimated to take. Disease, starvation and overwork cost the lives of more than one hundred thousand men with many of them buried where they fell. After it was completed 30,000 prisoners were kept in six camps along the railway to maintain it. Close to the bridge and other strategic positions, the prisoners were then vulnerable to Allied attacks. The ‘Bridge’, monuments, museums and cemeteries around the region commemorate events of 1942 and 1943 serving as a poignant reminder that ‘for every sleeper laid a life was lost’.
