China Bay Airstrip, Ceylon

China Bay Airstrip, Ceylon

This picture gives us a good view of the airstrip at RAF China Bay on Ceylon, probably during 1944. We can see a number of Liberators on the first side of the field, and some of the squadron or base personnel on the near side.

Many thanks to Ken Creed for sending us these pictures, which were taken by his wife's uncle Terry Ruff during his time with No.357 Squadron, a special operations unit that operated over Burma, Malaya and Sumatra.
