    Can anyone help me with the name of the POW camp on the attached, from January to April 1944.
    Looks like Canbrui no 3?

    Hello Steve, my best guess is that it's referring to one of the Kan'buri camps.

    Good luck with your searching.

    Kind regards, always,

    I would think it is a phonetical misspelling of what was sometimes listed back then as Kamburi Camp.

    Gnr E A Raymond was one of the Party of POWs from Padang known as the British Sumatra Battalion. 85 A/T Regt were not in Sumatra so it is most likely he escaped from Singapore and had made his way to Padang hoping to find a ship.
    (Ref: The British Sumatra Battalion by A A Apthorp) and a member of the Work Party 51 Kumi.
