Leggies for June

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.


Sinking of the Lisbon Maru

2nd October 1942

Drawn in Kobe, by W.C. Johnson


Time has dimmed the memories of things that have happened in the last sixty years but the tragedy of the Lisbon Maru, nearly sixty years ago is etched indelibly in many minds.

This remarkable picture was sent in by Reg Shore, he says it still brings on nightmares thinking about that fateful day of October 2nd 1942, when the Lisbon Maru went down.
