Hi all, My late grandfather (a citizen of Malaya of Chinese descent) was a medical assistant attached to Penang General Hospital in the Straits Settlements at the time. He was sent to one of the POW camps on the Thai Burma railway but did not speak much about his experience. I have been trying to find some information about which camp he may have been sent to, however records on non-POWs are seemingly quite lacking. He also received postcards after the war from an Australian POW (a C J Doyle), whom we believe he met while in Thailand. From such a postcard, I've managed to locate some information about the soldier including his capture card (attached). I am trying to work out this soldier's movements during the war, as a best guess for my grandfather as well. From my patchy Chinese/Japanese, it seems that he was moved to Thai Camp No. 4 - which appears to refer to either Wan Yai or Tamuan, depending on the year if my research is accurate? I have been unable to locate any further items confirming where C J Doyle was held, and definitely no liberation form on file. If anyone had any suggestions on what else I could try, I would be very happy to receive them! Also - it seems C J Doyle was moved to the Thai camp in around April 1945 which from my understanding, is after the Thai Burma Railway was completed. Does anyone have any information on why the Japanese were moving soldiers to Thailand at the time? Could it be related to Mergui Road? Thanks all!
