Mopping up in Meiktila

Mopping up in Meiktila

Here we see two British infantrymen clearing up in Meiktila, during the British reconquest of Burma. The city fell to the British in late February 1945 and was then besieged by the Japanese, but this counterattack failed, and the British were able to hold onto the city.
