    My uncle John was captured when Singapore surrendered.
    He never slept with the light off and had terrible nightmares.
    He also never took his shirt off in company due to his back being a mass of scars from the lashings they got from the guards for not working hard enough.
    The Japanese hated them for surrendering.
    The only thing he ever said was he was one of the lucky ones as somehow he survived.
    A big old softie who had no hatred for his captors.

    At peace now.

    The horrors of war in Asia should never be forgotten. Your uncle was/is remarkable. I know some who even now who cannot forgive the cruelty meted out to their relations.
    The BBC has produced a lovely celebration for VJ75

    Edit
    Correction, not lovely, magnificent.

    Poor you.
    I guess having lived in Malaysia, I feel part of anything to do with the area. We often visited Singapore and the history of the area is 'part' of me.
    I was lucky enough to visit Changi thirty odd years ago and saw the museum, which is closed to the public now, in situ. We often visited Kranji Memorial, with visitors.
