The camp designation "Moulmein" is misleading. Moulmein is 65km north of Thanbyuzayat which was the northern terminus of the infamous Burma-Siam Railway. The 4800 Australians in Burma were all sent from Singapore or Java to work on the railway construction. The Burma section was completed in October 1943, after which the POWs were moved into Thailand.
