Bangkok, Thailand. 18 April 1945. Aerial view of the Klong Phasi Charoen canal locks which were attacked by aircraft of No. 356 (Liberator) Squadron RAF. As a result of the attack, one set of lock gates was destroyed, another probably damaged and a number of rivercraft destroyed. The Klong Damneum Sadauk canal, which was also attacked on the same day, are part of a large waterways system in the Bangkok area being used by the Japanese as an alternative communications route and the bomb damage caused by the air attacks has reduced their efficiency by approximately 80%.
