Well done done John, one man showing by his kind offer that “they shall not be forgotten”. I’m not really a religious man John, but if a God does exist, may he bless you.

Hi John
we, members of COFEPOW, are intending to make a journey to Singapore/Thailand to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the surrender of Singapore next year Feb 2012.
Any information re accommodation & travel would be gratefully received. We have noted that there are tours organised by the Royal British Legion in association with Leger holidays but nothing arranged for next year so far.
