The list of internees at Padang at the end of the Diary and the various footnotes I have added to the diary will I hope be of some assistance - David Lewis


I would like to thank David Lewis for supplying and  letting me use the booklet he has produced for his family.


Sharing information with others is rewarding in itself, the pieces from the jigsaw begin to fit together and a picture begins to appear. Improve your knowledge and help make the Fepow Story an everlasting memorial to their memory.

Any material  to add to the Fepow Story please send to:

and their story will live on.
