Charlie Edwards, a friend of my father during the Second World War and after received a write-up in the Herald Sun today.
My father collected a number of official photographs after the war. I am not sure of the source. Perhaps the photographs were obtained from 2/19th Battalion Association or the Department of Veterans’ Affairs.
Shao Ping and I visited Kanchanaburi and the Bridge on the River Kwai in Thailand during October, 2003.
My father sent six prisoner of war postcards during his internment as a prisoner of war. The postcards were sent to his family via the Red Cross. Prisoners of war were not able to write very much. Space was limited.
Frank kept several maps that relate to his time as a prisoner of war. The map showing the location of prisoner of war camps is very interesting and contains a high level of detail.
