Leggies July

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.




There has been increasing problems with the running of the Fepow List as an open forum lately.

As it is an open forum it leaves itself open for anyone to join and send in sometimes unwanted mail, also attempts have been made to send a virus.

The Fepow List has proved to be a great way to share information with others over the last few years, It is with regret that due to certain circumstances it has now been discontinued.
The Fepow Message Board will continue in its present format with the object of helping those researching.

Please share information on the Message Board and treat it like an open forum.
Every piece of the jigsaw helps others understand why, how, and where our loved ones spent their time as Japanese POW's.

Every page of the Monthly Revue now contains a feedback form, this can be used to ask for or supply information for the Monthly Revue pages. The feedback will be added as soon as possible to the relevant subject page.

The contents of the Feedback Form can then be Moderated at the Fepow Community Mail Server, I hope you enjoy this latest addition to researching the Fepow Story.

There are no words strong enough to describe these pictures, the body’s deprivation or the mental torment, resulting in lasting nightmares to disrupt future sleep
