HW
  The numbers nowadays is small, but their sacrifice remains enormous. Veterans, the bitter warriors in the Far East, came to the cenotaph to remember. Sixty-five years after Japan surrendered to the might of atomic bomb, the nation too paid its respects. “When you go home, tell them of us, and say ‘for your tomorrow, we go up to there’ They shall grow not old as we were left grow old.”
  “Age shall not weary them, nor do the years condemn. After going down of the sun and in the morning, we will remember them.”
  The war with Japan cost 30,000 British in commonwealth lives. A further twelve and a half thousand men died in prisoners’ war camps from beatings, diseases and starvation. Now aged 91 Alf Locka was a prisoner for three years. “ The Japanese, in their nature ~~ If they told you that there were some speaking Japanese, it is not I was saying. Some others just made some mistakes to try to adopt some sentences.”
  The Prince of Wales and the Duchess ~~ also attended to the ceremony. David Cameron laid a wreath on behalf of the government. Also there was frank sake who served a board of hospital ship, treating liberated prisoners of war, many barely alive.
“’With four grown-up men you pick up with more or less, one arm really, some were disgusting, it was just horrible to watch them come in. We brought a first ~~ weapon~~ in Malaysia. That was the worst thing I’ve ever seen. “
With many veterans now in their 90s, the numbers able to attend the commemoration like this are slowly dwindling. While their memories may fade slightly with age, their pride in their part in the so-called forgotten war remains as strong as ever.
