Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Far East Prisoners of War is a term used in the United Kingdom to describe former British and Commonwealth prisoners of war held in the Far East during the Second World War. The term is also used as the initialism FEPOW (spelled out when said, not pronounced as a word), or as the abbreviation Far East POWs.Its adoption by various independent voluntary organisations providing support to this specific community of former POWs is an implicit indictment of the perceived lack of UK government support for this community, criticism deflected recently by a UK government compensation scheme introduced in 2000.show more
