28.5 Hintok

The small contingent of US POWs who worked on the TBR in the Hintok area of Thailand had either been left behind in Singapore as their originally assigned group transited through there or in the case of the Merchant Mariners had been left there by the Germans who had captured them. Most of the former had been hospitalized but eventually recovered enough that they were assigned to the mostly Australian H-Force and sent by rail to BanPong then marched to Hintok.

Administratively, H-Force was never actually assigned to IJA control in Thailand. So, upon completion of the TBR, the survivors were all returned to Singapore. The Australian contingent had been hit heavily by a cholera outbreak which the Americans managed to avoid since they were quartered in a different sub-camp.
