Description: Burma image, WA0711. Self and some of the party during a rest. Except in the hills rough roads exist throughout the Shan States and bullock cart transport is slow but sure.
Photograph taken by James Henry Green in Burma (Myanmar) in the 1920s.
Major C. M. Enriquez, who commanded Kachin troops in Mesopotamia in the first world war wrote the following on the advantages and disadvantages of lodging in villages compared to staying in special military rest houses that had been built in many parts of British administered territory: ?There were, of course, no more comfortable rest-houses, but this had its advantages as well as its drawbacks. It is troublesome to be stared at and spat round, and there is an awful monotony in expounding the same truths, making the same jokes, and meeting the same defeats for twenty consecutive days; but on the other hand, there is a far closer intimacy with the villagers round the camp-fire, which has its pleasures and compensations. The rest-house, whatever its comforts, has been a serious factor in isolating us from the people. A special insight belonged to the days when officers travelled slowly, slept in huts and zayats, or sought the hospitality of village monasteries? [?A Burmese Arcady?, Major C. M. Enriquez, London, 1923, p.243]
