Japanese POW camps
« on: Tuesday 03 November 20 19:57 GMT (UK) »
Discovered (with help) my uncles war records and found he was captured in 1942 in Indonesia and sent to the brutal Camp at Ambon before being transferred to Hakadate Main Camp He served with 605 squadron and survived. Have you relatives who were also at these camps?
