Jaipur Column, Delhi

Jaipur Column, Delhi

This picture shows Jaipur Column, in the grounds of Rashtrapati Bhavan, now the residence of the President of India. During the Second World War the palace was known as the Star of India, and was the residence of the Viceroy.

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.
