🔥Description🔥

The Sandakan Prisoner of War Memorial in Lismore, northern NSW, commemorates the Australian and British prisoners of war, including those from the Richmond River district, who died or were killed or suffered in the Sandakan tragedy of World War Two. On this Remembrance Day 2020 our hearts are with them and their families and loved ones, and the people of North Borneo (now Sabah), who suffered along with them. Lest we forget.

The author's father was one of the six survivors of the Sandakan Death March in Japanese occupied Borneo during the Second World War. Approximately 1,500 Australian and British prisoners of war died from the experience. Braithwaite retells the story from the different perspectives of all who went through it and also assesses the lasting toll on the survivors.
