26th March 1945 My Uncle John murdered by Japanese guards on the Sandekan Death March. Ages 22. He has no known grave.

Rest in peace Uncle John, I will never forget you.

Oddly enough ever since my trip to Kranji I have been doing a little research on this (among others) and as you would expect there is little information to be found but one website seemed like it could (long shot) provide you with a little more information.

http://lynettesilver.com/sandakan/pr...d/pow-records/

He is listed in the POW records section of the website but it seems like you have to contact her to get the information.

Quote:
A large amount of information regarding the fate of Australian and British prisoners sent to, or destined for, the Sandakan POW Camp, has been collated. Original death records, compiled at the time by Allied camp staff and handed to the Japanese POW Administration, were recovered post-war. An exact copy of this information is available from Lynette Silver in quasi-certificate form for Australians who died at Sandakan, on the death marches or at Ranau, along with details of initial burial, reburial, place of commemoration and any other details. Similar information is available for British prisoners. As this is a special service for POW families, there is a nominal charge to cover the cost of extracting and collating the material and postage.Information for those who died at Jesselton, Labuan, Brunei, Kuala Belait, Miri or Singapore’s Outram Road Gaol varies. In some cases, a full statement of death is available.
This information is available in a format as close to the original as possible. Each certificate is compiled on an individual basis and includes all data on the prisoner that has been found to date.
To ascertain if information is available on a particular POW, please check the following list. To request more information please email Lynette and supply the following details:- The full name of the POW, the country of enlistment ie were they enlisted by England or Australia, if they were army, airforce or navy and the unit they were part of, if known.
Based on the fact that he is listed gave me the impression that they do have some further information.

Thanks for that Monty.

I did contact FEPOW quite a while ago, who sent me all details that were available. Japanese records stated that he died of malaria, they forgot to add starvation diet and beating, lack of medicines and overall brutality of the Japanese.

The Jap CO Captain Susumi Hoshijima was condemned to death at his war crimes trial, bit the hangman on his way to the gallows. He was hanged 6th April 1946.

Its a pity he didnt suffer like the men under his command .
