Leggies for May

Sketch by J Chevallier


Food was every Fepow’s prime concern and achieving ‘Leggies’ was that little bit extra every Fepow craved for.

This is the little bit extra.

These are extracts are taken from the list and Message Board with Leggies added.




Please use headings which explain the topic covered, or look back and add to a topic already used, this helps considerably in collating the pages.

Some of the topics last month were very long and required splitting like ‘Repatriation and Consequences’, this was split into two topics, ‘Treatment and Consequences’ and ‘Repatriation’.

The ‘Book’ and ‘Web Sites’ folders will be added each month.


If a topic carries into the next month, it will be added as ‘Continued’ to the bottom of the main menu.


Kanyu River Camp and Cemetery

Jack Chalker

The news of Jack Chalker’s painting being sold, broke last month. It is a great pity these were not kept together as collectively they tell a story.

The 100 painting collection reached 195,000.

Anyone wishing to add a memorable book to their collection, the ‘Burma Railway Artist’ tells Jack Chalker’s story. The book is a good read and as many of his paintings are added, you will then have your own Jack Chalker collection, well worth the money at only 17.95.
