    Default British POW Postcards- imp japanese army.

    Hi,

    Thought i'd post some pictures of imperial japanese army postcards sent by a British Prisoner of War. Sorry about the paintshop censoring- these are family treasures.

    In the unlikely event that someone out there knows a serious heck of a lot about 1930s british racehorses:
    The last postcard's short message is a code.....
    It confused the family so it was handed in to the War Office.....
    The code either says where the camp was, or that he was in a different camp (japanese making them disinform).

    I'd love to know if this is true- anyone know what kind of War Office archives i should dig in (planning a trip to Kew)?
    jim.
