"'The bombing of the Nambol Bridge in '1944' during WWII".
For 73 years up till now, there had been none to clarify and justify,both living and dead that the bridge you see here is none other than the Nambol bridge, that had been hit & pounded by British and allies in 1944 during WWII. The records in the image says a British Hawker Hurricane Mark IIC of No. 42 Squadron RAF based at Kangla, Burma, piloted by Flying Officer 'Campbell, releasing two 250-lb GP bombs on a bridge on the Tiddim Road, Burma. But, this is totally wrong & ridiculous. It should be said as Kangla, Manipur and the bridge should be on the Tiddim road of Indian side not Tiddim or Tedim of Burma side. I have a concrete relevant materials & physical evidence for my claims & proof !!!
Note : The fighter's direction is heading towards west from Imphal side.
