A photograph of my wife’s uncle. (Her mother’s brother.) Cyril Dermott. Perished in September, 1944, age 28years. He was a Japanese P.O.W., together with many other P.O.W. on a Japanese ship, when it was attacked and bombed by allied aircraft, and it was sunk. The allied aircraft crew had know way of knowing that allied P.O.Ws. we’re on that Japanese ship. A tragedy of war. I did see that his name had been recorded, in the special section, at the Japanese Atrocities Exhibition Building, at the National Memorial, Alrewas, Staffordshire.
