    Blackpool was approx one full circle south-west of your mark... The capture from sat imagery shows the same river shape approx repeated in the map contained in Milner's book... both attached...

    I drew up a map recently for a relative of a soldier who fought at Blackpool. They wanted to understand the line of withdrawal more than anything else.

    New 003.JPG I am having trouble locating Point 2171 which does not appear to be marked on my 1/4 inch map. The general location,Taungni Bum has been circled.

    That's about the right location... a peak slightly east of Point 2303... map is from CAB44-185, Barton's Narrative, part 4

    By coincidence, I am including Major Blaker's VC action at Point 2171 in the latest edition of the Chindit Column newsletter.

    Yes, thanks Mike. With the White City image you can literally zoom right down onto the roof of the Pagoda. There seems to have been a good deal of development of the site around White City since I was there in 2008.
