A distant relative, Wilfred Cookson was a Gunner in the 5 Searchlight Regiment, Royal,Artillery, Service Number 1709708. Wilfred died on 5 March 1943 in Malaya but has no known grave. He is commemorated on the Singapore War Memorial in Kranji, Singapore. Ancestry.co.uk records say that he was a Japanese Prisoner of War. Can anyone tell me if I can access the Japanese Prisoner of War Records (when current restrictions are lifted) and what they would tell me? Also where can I find out more about the Regiment and what happened to the soldiers in Malaya in 1943? Thank you in advance and stay safe.
