Memorial Plaque Mandalay Hill
A memorial plaque donated after the war had been erected in honour of the 2nd Battalion and stands at the entrance to a pagoda near the top of Mandalay hill. These images were made possible through the unselfish efforts and hard work of Thandar Nay Win and her associates for which I personally remain forever grateful.
