Borneo PoWs

  This information came from Ray Clitheroe on 9 Dec 2008, who says, inter alia:

I have found another pic of interest which I have attached. My Dad told me about this photo when I was younger, less interested and I didn't heed the details as much as I should, but I am sure he said it was taken in Borneo which means it is a 2/15th photo. I think Dad said the digger at centre-back, who can be seen clearly head, shoulders and chest, directly over the head of the centre Japanese in the front row of 3 POW's, is my Dad. The kids to the left seem to support the Borneo location. I thought it would make an interesting pic for the website and I thought I might even see if I can get it "blown-up" professionally for more detail. Someone / decendant may recognise the digger with his arms folded front-right and the other with his hands on his hips at the rear-right. I am fairly certain Dad said they were NCO's. There is not a mark on the back of the pic to assist in identifying the subject of the photo.
