Video of Excursion to WWII Sites – Part Three
Video of the tour to World War Two sites in Chiang Mai and Lamphun with Lifelong Living Payap, part three

The video below is the final in a three-part series produced by Ally Taylor after he participated in Lifelong Learning Payap’s excursion to historical WWII Sites in Chiang Mai and Lamphun last November. Ally runs the fabulous YouTube Channel, Good Life in Chiang Mai, Thailand. His first video was an overview of the historic WWII aircraft housed at Tango Squadron Air Museum at the Chiang Mai Airport, Airforce Base, Wing 41. The second video in his series provides us with an in-depth look at Wat Muen San in ​​Chiang Mai, which was used as a WWII field hospital of the Imperial Japanese army and a POW compound for a group of British soldiers.

In this this third video Ally describes the San Khayom Railway Bridge, where WWII damage can still be seen, and also the crash site of a P40 Aircraft flown by the Ace pilot Jack Newkirk. Additionally, he discusses the final stop on the day tour, Ban Kad School (Khem Wangrat Rangsarit School) in Mae Wang. Here the group visited the Japanese Soldier Memorial, where it is recorded that in 1995, 18,000 bodies were interned in the well below the monument, after collecting remains of the soldiers from various sites across northern Thailand. We can’t thank Ally enough for giving us permission to feature his videos. Watch part one by clicking on the above link to his YouTube channel, or here on our website.
