The Lisbon Maru Japanese Cargo Ship in 1942.
One of the reasons I started this blog was my father-in-law and his being taken prisoner by the Japanese in 1942. He spent 3 1/2 years on Ambon Island at the Tan Toey P.O.W. Camp.
His experiences haunted him for much of his life and he would never talk about them except to other P.O.W.’s. In 1995 he finally put it all down on paper and self – published a book. He also became an advocate for ALL P.O.W.’s.
