So very sad what happened with all those young men. The cruelties they endured even before the ship was bombed. Locked in the holds with hardly any water to drink or food , just a little rice. No room to turn and having to answer the calls of nature in over flowing buckets. Nightmarish on all those ships, usually taking them to Japan for slave labour. Rest in Peace young man.
From the sparse details that I have been fortunate to acquire. He was in the 1st Battalion of the Manchester Regiment.
The regimental badge of the Manchester Regiment was the fleur de lis.
Such a tragic loss, at such a young age.We owe them all a great deal.They must never be forgotten. RIP.
