Bangkok, Thailand. 18 April 1945. The west lock gate of the Klong Damneum Sadauk canal before a low-level daylight air attack by aircraft of No. 356 (Liberator) Squadron RAF of Strategic Air Force, Eastern Air Command. A similar attack was also made on the Klong Phasi Charoen canal. The canals were 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 reduced their efficiency by approximately 80%.
