Mount Lavinia, Ceylon

Mount Lavinia, Ceylon

Mount Lavinia was originally the residence of the Governor of Ceylon, but by the time this wartime photo was taken it had become a hotel, and was being used as a military hospital.

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.
