Ben's Original Question
Christopher Woodford: Hello Ben, In early 1946, my father and mother went to our rail station to meet her youngest brother at the train station. He was coming home from the Far East where he had spent 1942-45 in a Japanese prisoner of war camp in Singapore. He saw them first and came up to speak. They did not recognize him. He was not much more than an emaciated skeleton, and this was his condition after spending months in rehabilitation.
