I AM very pleased to know that a memorial to all those who served in the Far East, and particularly to those who were imprisoned, is being erected in Camden – paid for by generous public subscription and endorsement of the Camden New Journal.
“It will remind future generations of the gallantry, suffering and sacrifices of so many soldiers, sailors and airman from all over the Commonwealth who fought against the Japanese aggressors.
“They were a long way from home and lived and fought in very difficult conditions. Their reward has been absence of serious conflict in the area ever since.
“I express my gratitude to all of you who have helped guard the memory and show reverence towards the memorial.”
HRH Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh
