In memory of the tens of thousands of British civilian and military personnel who suffered incarceration, many dying, in the Far East during the Second World War 1939 - 45, including those forced to labour on the Burma Railway. They ask for nothing but remembrance of their lives and a promise of peace for future generations.

Image by Ronald Searle, artist and prisoner of war who laboured on the Burma Railway.
