Today I thought I had found a brand new Rangoon Jail POW. Not so!
This is the name on the Japanese index card 'Richfase G.'.
Never heard or seen him mentioned before, now I like that. Luckily, they had placed his service number on the scantily filled card.
Enter into GSE, hey presto George Griffiths of the DWR.
Do you think the Japanese clerk had trouble understanding English, which is understandable I guess?

Now try it in your best Japanese accent! Much the the same really.

Washington H.? No service number, no one by that name from British ranks on the operation. Date of death 01/06/1943, this fits about 12 soldiers details, none whose name remotely resembles the above.
The same style of card, this one is a real mystery. There was a Burma Rifleman with the name Washington, but it really shouldn't be him.

"Well, the most important thing that was new was the idea of URI -- or URL. The idea that any piece of information anywhere should have an identifier, which will not only identify it, but allow you to get hold of it. That idea was the basic clue to the universality of the Web. That was the only thing I insisted upon." Tim Berners-Lee.

Griffiths in a real;) Welsh accent sounds like............... Griffiths!
I'm now sat here saying "Griffiths" in a mock welsh accent.
I can understand how they got name wrong.
