    Thank you. It's become the jumping off point to attempting to write a book about the POW experience.

    Its a good starter for a huge undertaking and something that many of us were largely unaware of except of course from films.
    Many of these men were traumatised by their experiences in a time when such things were not to be spoken of.
    Hope you achieve your goal!

    Thank you for your words of encouragement. Started last October and have been ploughing through a huge mountain of POW memoirs, unpublished diaries and letters and first hand accounts recorded by the IWM not to mention all the journal articles and academic stuff I've found. Have a long way to go yet but it's starting to take some kind of shape.
