EDITORS COMMENTS
This photo captures a significant moment in history, showcasing the senior commanders at the 36th Division headquarters in Burma during January 1945. The image was taken by Lieutenant Whitley Austin, a member of the SEAC Photo Unit during World War Two. In this powerful photograph, we see Air Marshal Sir Guy Garrod, Acting Allied Air Commander-in-Chief South East Asia on the left. Standing beside him is Major-General Francis Festing, Commanding British 36th Division in the middle. Lastly, Major-General Howard Davidson stands to their right as he commands the US 10th Air Force. The three commanders are deep in conversation as they confer on air supply problems at the headquarters located in central Burma. This meeting highlights their dedication and determination to overcome challenges faced during wartime. This particular print is one of twenty-nine official British photographs from that era.
