Japanese Prisoner in Singapore & Formosa (Taiwan)

February 1942 - August 1945


Question not but live and labour

Till yon goal be won

Helping every feeble neighbour

Seeking help from none;

Life is mostly froth and bubble

Two things stand like stone

Kindness in anotherīs trouble

Courage in your own
