Bangkok, Thailand. 18 April 1945. A bomb exploding on the west end of the lock gate of the Klong Damneum Sadauk canal under a low-level daylight air attack by aircraft of No. 356 (Liberator) Squadron RAF of Strategic Air Force, Eastern Air Command. At the same time, Klong Phasi Charoen canal was under attack by other Liberator aircraft of No. 356 Squadron RAF. These two canals were important elements of a large waterways system in the Bangkok area being used by the Japanese as an alternative communications route and the damage caused by the air attacks reduced their efficiency by approximately 80%.
