Hell Fire Pass is the name of a railway cutting on the former “Death Railway” in Thailand which was built with forced labour during the Second World War, in part by Allied prisoners of war. The pass is noted for the harsh conditions and heavy loss of life suffered by its labourers during construction. Hell Fire Pass is so called because the sight of emaciated prisoners labouring at night by torchlight was said to resemble a scene from Hell.

Hi, my name’s Chris. I live in the beautiful county of Monmouthshire.
When I was 10 I was given a Brownie 110 for a school trip – not a single shot came out! But ….. the photography bug was born.
My interests are broad in both subject & style leading to a diverse portfolio – check out My Directory at http://www.missmoneypenny.talktalk.net/ to see just how varied my style & products are.
I hope you enjoy your visit, my sites have been created with you in mind.

    Beautiful capture Chris. x

  • It was so hot walking along that pass – it’s hard to imagine men being forced to do such hard work in that heat and under such appalling conditions.

    A gruesome history Chris. Working in the heat would be enough to send me to hell.

  • Me too – it was hard enough walking in it
