    Should anyone be able to help me with information relating to the war service of my late friend, Ed Turner, I would be most obliged. Despite Ed and I having been good friends for 10 years, he rarely spoke of his war experiences. All I managed to get out of him is as set out below.

    Served as a member of the Royal Artillery (TA) in Bradford, West Yorkshire prior to WW2.

    May well have served with 280 Battery of 122 Field Regiment Royal Artillery.

    Captured by the Japanese following the fall of Singapore in 1942.

    A prisoner at Changi + in Korea (mine work) and Japan, and was working in the hold of a Japanese freighter when the atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima.

    Thank you.
