    Evening all

    I’m trying to find some information about a friend’s great grandfather. Albert James Stow served with the 4th Battalion of the Suffolk Regiment and was killed on 4 July 1943. Possibly involved in building the Burma Railway.

    Any service information, photos would be greatly appreciated. Does anyone have a photo of the grave? He is buried at Kanchanaburi Cemetery.

    Thanks

    James
