I have attached a few pictures of a grouping that belong to Major P.T Howard who became a POW of the Japanese early in the war. By all accounts he was a true hero that always had his mens best interest before and after there capture. After they were liberated he was responsible in bringing justice against some of the Japanese officers who committed acts of atrocities against his men. The grouping includes the War diary that shows the last entry before surrender was declared. It is one of my most treasured groupings and shows the strength of character of Major Howard.
