Beached Fishing Boat, Ceylon

Beached Fishing Boat, Ceylon

This picture of a beached fishing boat on Ceylon shows the unusual 'banana' shape with a very high bow and stern. This resembles a common artistic representation of medieval warships, often dismissed as inaccurate.

Many thanks to Ken Creed for sending us these pictures, which were taken by his wife's uncle Terry Ruff during his time with No.357 Squadron, a special operations unit that operated over Burma, Malaya and Sumatra.
