VISITORS AND RESEARCHERS COMMENTS PAGE
Visitors to our COFEPOW Memorial Building and Memorial site at the National
Memorial Arboretum leave their comments in The’ Visitor Comments Book’ which is situated in the COFEPOW
This has proved a popular and useful mechanism for
visitors to share with others their observations and feelings during their stay.However, it has limited availability for others to view.
Until now visitors and researchers to the COFEPOW Website or Database have left
their comments by telephone, email or letters to our Chairman, Carol Cooper and others.
A new facility for visitors and researchers to the website, database or COFEPOW Memorial
Building and site enables entry of their comments on this website page, to be viewed by a wider audience and at the same time provide the same outlet for observations
and feelings as does the visitors book.

A fantastic site, which I revisited today on the 70th anniversary
of Singapore’s surrender. My late Father was not a POW, he was however
one of the first RAF into Singapore after the Jap Surrender & took Medics
& medical supplies to Changi Jail as a member of 230 Sqd. He would often
tell stories ( well sanitized as I now know) about what he saw. Like many
other Far East Vets I have had the honour of meeting it was well into the
1980s before anything made in Japan came into our house. He also had a
scar on his backside from a Jap bayonet (Japs still armed when he fist went in
) from getting too ‘angry’ (his word) with a Japanese soilder!
Lest we forget
"There are no great men, only great challenges that ordinary men
are forced by circumstances to meet." William F. Halsey
