    I have bought several wartime Japanese post cards as some of them are I.N.A. or Thakin related. There are three of various locations that I had hoped to identify but I am struggling to do so. Not being able to read or write Japanese, I am unable to identify them from the captions. Can anyone please help me identify the locations?

    Picture one. My thoughts were that this might be either Singapore or Malaya.

    Picture two.

    I thought that this might show the burning oil tanks at Syriam with the burning city of Rangoon to the left, but having compared it to other known photographs, I am not sure that it is.

    The third photograph shows a walled city with a moat. It does not appear to be of Mandalay and there are many more walled, moated towns in south east Asia., Hue, being one example.
