The Indian army photographic team Burma 1944

by thebeautifulpeopleblog

Although my grandpa enlisted as a gunner in the Royal artillery at the very start of the Second World War he had the choice to be  a captain in the Indian army and he took position as a photographer working for the intelligence department out of GHQ in New Delhi.

This photograph shows the photographic unit in Burma in 1944, this lorry doubled up as the team’s darkroom and the water they needed to develop the film had to be found in the nearest river. My grandpa is furthest left.
