hi there! ive started my research on my great grandfather, Edward Butler, who was a POW in thailand during the war. ive been okay with finding stuff out and i’ve got the great luck of having a japanese speaking family member to help me translate some records but it’s been a bit difficult finding more info now. unfortunately both of my great grandparents on that side have passed before i could meet them so i can’t ask any questions, i could probably ask a grandparent if they know anything else though. so far here’s what we’ve found: Bs-Bu Database (not too sure what camp 4D means so i’m posting here in hopes of finding out.) he was captured in singapore 15/2/1942, possibly arrived in thailand 16/6/1942, and was freed 13/9/1945, by i believe the bangkok forces (this was written on the back of the record attached below) - we translated the record to find this info out but we’re not 100% sure it’s right because of the old characters used we know he was a gunner, he was born 9/11/1911, his number was 1607462 and his unit when captured was 135 S.L.REGT.R.A. (i’m not great with military things so if anyone could help explain everything that would be fantastic!) thanks!
