A Remembrance Service was held on Wednesday 15th August at the Civic Centre, Motherwell, to commemorate VJ Day, also known as Far East Prisoner of War Day.

The Service was opened by Councillor Jean Jones, Provost of North Lanarkshire, who in her words of welcome referred to the suffering of the many men and woman who had been held prisoner by the Japanese in the Far East during WW2.

The theme was continued by Campbell Thomson of the Lanarkshire Yeomanry Group who told of the many hell camps situated throughout the Far East - in Taiwan, Thailand, Borneo, French Indo China and Japan. Tens of thousands of Allied troops, including the men of the 155th (Lanarkshire Yeomanry) Field Regiment RA, had endured

My wife and I lay a wreath on behalf of the FEPOW Family every year but this year I was accompanied by my older sister Patsy.

Patsy was a babe in arms when dad left for Singapore with the 18th division, she was four when he returned after he was liberated and she had to get to know him.
