LETTER: Armed Forces

I would like to send my praise to Janet Goldsborough-Jones, chairman of Worthing Royal British Legion, on a magnificent Armed Forces weekend.

All volunteers worked very hard; the chairs were very clean and the new stage worked very well with good acoustics for those of us in the gardens. Although it is notoriously difficult for the veterans to march on grass, they all managed beautifully, as we have come to expect from our service personnel.

The Cadets were extremely well turned out, very smart and very courteous.

And weren’t we lucky with the weather?

I, as secretary and welfare officer, was very proud to attend, as representative of the Java Far East Prisoners of War Club, and one of my members, Bob Morrell, read the Kohima Epitaph.

We are always looking for Far East Prisoners of War, their wives and their widows, to ensure that they are aware of their particular welfare benefits and to help their families to discover more about that difficult time in their FEPOWs’ lives.

Please contact me via our website – www.thejavafepowclub42.org.
