‘I remember a day [in 1945] in the monsoon near Letpanthonbin, east of Waw, in a hut with three other soldiers, and a man nursing a sick child who was moaning and would not be comforted. The nearest doctor was five miles away … we had no medical supplies … and for a common language, only a few phrases from an (British) Army booklet. “Gowng kaik day?”(headache) I asked. “Baik na day?” (stomach ache) ... with all his anxiety he responded with a smile, and that … has stayed in my mind.’—Dr Glyn Court, Lines from a Shining Land
