    Michael Marwood DSC has some tales to tell.

    I have just been talking to him on the phone - he is 93 but sharp as a needle. Apart from his BBC stuff here he told me how harrowing it was in 1945 in Singapore to receive on board men the Japs had held in Changi Jail, who were just skin and bone after years as guests of Hirohito. They were only allowed to be given very weak tea as they were so unused to food of any consequence. It will be recalled how Bligh, having successfully brought 18 men 3,500 miles to the East Indies in an open boat, lost some soon after arrival because they, for them in their condition, over-ate.
