My father fought the Japanese and was luckier than those who were captured and forced into slave labour, in that he was never captured. Luckier too, in his lights, and in those of his comrades, in that they were able to fight back, to recover from the disasters of 1942 and gradually force the Japanese back.
Remembrance Sunday is next Sunday, and the official celebrations will take place then. Tomorrow, though, at 11.00, I, and I imagine, most of my colleagues will stop work and make an act of remembrance. Spare a prayer tomorrow for miliary chaplains.
