Satin'Panic Map' of North Burma
A" Panickkarte " made of silver with central Burma on one side and northern Burma on the other. Some areas of the map that were important to the holder (Private E Dexter) were bordered with a pencil. The getaway card was given to Priv. E. Dexter, member of No. 4 Platoon, 2nd Battalion, York and Lancaster Regiment, for the Chindite operations (May to September 1944) in northern Burma during the Second World War.
Mr. Dexter talks about his experience in Burma during this operation: Then we ended up in the jungles of Burma, in the darkness in the early mornings. After that time we went to one, in the jungles, known as Indawgi Lakes, and took our injured and sick to the Assam clinic in the Sunderland airplanes that ended up on the lakes.
This map bears the title "Thai-Burma Railway" and shows the camp sites along the rail route. It runs from northwest to southeast in a diagonal direction and extends about 415 kilometers from Thanbyuzayat in Burma (now Myanmar) to Nong Pladuk in Thailand.
Most of the northern trail through Thailand to the Burma frontier, past Songkurai, follows the Kwae Noi trail. There are other large streams near the Mae Khlaung in Thailand, which flows into the Kwae Noi near Kanchanaburi, and the Ataran further North into Burma. There is an arrow pointing towards the northern side from Thanbyuzayat to Moulmein City in Burma, while there is an arrow pointing towards Bangkok (east) and Singapore (south) from Nong Pladuk.
Andaman Sea in the western part is signposted, which includes the seaside cities of Ye and Tavoy in Burma.
