    Hi,

    POW material is always fascinating, though material is very common in Europe, less from the far east.Here is an example of POW letter sent by a British Palestinian pow, a Jew, back to Palestine...did they deliberately make him pay extra posting fees? this telegram from 1945 is an interesting bit of history, managing to survive such a long time in captivity...amazing. I believe many did not.

    The western allies treated the pow's in their hands in the right way, while the Japanese did not...some of the worst war crimes where committed by the Japanese in Asia.

    This pow might have been from Greece or Crete.
