Carrying out the dead, Canchanburi Base Hospital


The hospital was formed as a dump for men who fell sick on the march. The Japanese boasted it was “the best equipped hospital in Siam,” but it had no equipment - it was equipped for the speedy despach of men who could not work - sick men were dead men to the Japs, and they were not worried. It is true that a mearge quantity of drugs was thrown in by the Japs - always the wrong sort. There was no Emetine for Dysentery. Thousands died in this alleged hospital.
