leave a comment »

VJ day was celebrated on 15th August 1945, 60 years ago.

It has been called the forgotten war:

“To the many veterans who fought in it and for those who survived the brutal conditions in the prisoner of war and labour camps, the war against the Japanese in the Far East will always be the forgotten war.”
