FEPOW Oral History Project

In partnership with the Imperial War Museum's (IWM) Sound Archive, London

In 2007 LSTM initiated an Oral History Project to find and interview up to fifty FEPOW.

Within two years sixty-two Far East veterans had been interviewed. These men, all now in their late 80s or 90s, represent the fast-dwindling number of FEPOW survivors.

Through these interviews these elderly gentlemen have shared not only memories of their experiences but also their unique long-term perspective. 

The project was commissioned by the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine in partnership with the Imperial War Museum Sound Archive and sponsored by the Heritage Lottery Fund.
