Deployment of Japanese Army Air
Force, 22 Jan 1942
Mysteriously, the JDA map doesn't show the advance field at Mae Sot, on the Burma-Thai border, but the evidence is strong that an airstrip did exist there. Mae Sot is now a major center for sewing up women's underwear, using Burmese women who cross the border every day from Myawaddy. You can see how the pressure is building on the RAF field at Moulmein, with its auxiliary field at Mudon to the south.
