Repatriation Memorial - Pier Head

Next time you visit the Pier Head, take a look at the Repatriation Memorial. When members of the Researching Far East Prisoner of War History Group considered the best way to honour the Far East Prisoners of War (FEPOWs),the Pier Head seemed the obvious place at which to erect a lasting memorial. The Plaque was unveiled on 17 October 2011 by camp survivor Maurice Naylor CBE, 91, in front of 650 guests. He was captured in 1942 in Singapore and spent three and a half years as a Prisoner of War, toiling on the infamous Burma Railway, a project which claimed the lives of thousands.
