Australian Prisoners of War on the Thai-Burma railway 1942-44

I received a lovely email from a lady who is researching the above to find out what she can about my man's eldest brother who died on a Japanese ship bombed by the Americans in Sept. 1944.
She sent  so much information about him and other prisoners.  I am  still teary.  So many beautiful young men used as slaves.     

And.... What for????  

I don't think that the railway was even used all that much.

We must never forget.   We must keep alert.   Do not become complacent.
