    A few photographs from an album that once belonged to an unknown member of the RAF. The album shows pictures of Calcutta and Darjeeling dating from January 1943 and a few of Fazilpur and Feni where the RAF were constructing forward bases for the invasion of Burma.

    Fazilpur and Feni once located in Bengal are now in the modern state of Bangladesh.

    Merry Christmas Bernard,

    unfortunately I do not know who took the photographs as the album is poorly captioned. There are some touristy type photographs of Darjeeling and Calcutta and one or two of RAF personal but absolutely nothing that would identify the original photographer.

    Simon.
