He remained on the railroad even after it was completed and eventually in February was sent miles east of Bangkok to build the airfield at Ubon Ratchathani. Whilst there, he suffered two attacks of malaria.
In July he suffered Broadies Abscess to his right leg and possibly underwent surgery. He probably suffered with this leg for the rest of his life? He was liberated at the airfield, and repatriated via Bangkok. Jess, re Frank Wilson. He appears not to have been a POW who was taken by the advancement of the Japanese between December and April He is not listed in any files or documents. I believe the only Fusiliers at this time were the 9th Northumberland Fusiliers, and as a double check he is not listed in their Regimental Roll. I would suggest you seek more knowledge about this time as I know they had Lancashire Fusiliers, Inniskilling Fusiliers and Welch Fusiliers and probably others.
David, re Gunner Norman Wade. Thanks for additional information, it does help to be able to go straight to a regimental file, and also knowing he died, saves looking for Liberation Questionnaires and homeward ships.

The only details we have are the name Frank Wilson, from Yorkshire and we believe he was a fusilier. He did make it back after the war hope this narrows it down! Thank you! Maybe he was a civilian internee rather than a military POW? I can check the home town and parents names of the 7 repost details if you think there may be a chance he used an assumed Christian name which many did in that era.
I assume he came home and did not die during the war? Does any one have any info on William Woodley. I'm trying to discover this and where he was F. W for a friend. William or [Bill was her Uncle.

Hi Rose, re Pte Edward Buckingham. Although he completed a Liberation Questionnaire, he chose to merely write his name and address, and left blank the details and dates for his POW camps.
This would have been the evidence to link him to a doctor. He was sent by train to the Burma Railroad on Marylingodwin8 icloud.

I loved him very much and it's hard knowing that there was a whole section of his life he couldn't talk about and I couldn't help him. Hi, I wonder if you could help me find some information about my great uncle, Pte Edward George Buckingham, , 1st. Cambridgeshire Regiment 18th Division. He didn't talk much about his experiences, but I know he was forced to work on the Burma Railway.
One thing he did tell us was that he got an infection in his toe. The Japanese were going to cut his foot off, which would have killed him he would have bled out. But a 'foreign doctor' pleaded with the Japanese to be allowed to treat my uncle. He saved my uncle's toe, his foot and his life. I will be forever grateful to him. I wondered if the doctor concerned was Dr Henri Hekking.
Is there any chance that they crossed paths, or did anyone on here serve with my uncle?
Val, re Francis Patrick O'Neill. Are you able to get any more information from your B-in-Law? I have not been able to find any trace of him in Far East files. He was taken prisoner 22Feb Pop was a barber and in damand to keep hygine etc. This saved him from being sent to The Line a number of times. In my mum intervied him about his experiences and is transcribed into a document if you are interested. He would never talk about his experiences to us but just found out he had confided in my brother-in-law, also a Navy man.
Hope you can help. Many thanks. Ian, re Gunner Richard Leslie. Departed from Changi on 4th April in 'F Force'. Died 26th August at Songkurai No. His mother and father put a memorial in the 'Courier-Mail' of Brisbane, on 21st September , stating he had died of malaria. Sorry, but this is the only information I have. Does anyone know where Malai Camp was situated, they all seem to have numbers attached so there may have been many camps with such a name..
