The Royal New Zealand Artillery
I recently purchased a WW2 Japanese Battle flag which was taken from a POW camp. It has on it several names and numbers of POWs interned at the camp all of whom were soldiers in the RNZA. Some have written "Fort Dorset, Wellington".
I am hoping to frame the flag as a tribute to the POWs who suffered
at the hands of the Japanese. I would be extremely grateful in any help in tracing infor
mation about the POWs who have signed this flag.
I have taken two pictures of the flag along with the names on it. Unfortunately the names are illegible in any photographs I’ve taken. However I have written down all the names I could read. Here is all the information I could make out:
Unfortunately the writing has faded over time so some of the information may be wrong.
