Together we can make a difference          

Whatever nationality, colour or religion, the Japanese attack on the Far East brought war, death and suffering to the civilian and service personnel who found they were facing a well prepared Japanese fighting force which could not be stopped. The nightmare then began as Prisoners of War and Internees. Together with the Romusha (native labour), they were put to work as slave labour in the Japanese war machine and the death toll rose sharply. After three years of death and suffering the nightmare ended in a radio broadcast on the 15th August 1945 by the Japanese Emporer. Saying farewell to mates left behind those who survived made their way home, but ‘Not all Wounds Bled’. Of Those Who Survived, the nightmares never ceased.

Des Bettany had carried small sketch books with him, and recorded the actions in Malaya and Singapore, in various media including pencil, ink, water colour and pastel. He continued his artistic endeavours during his new life as a P.O.W. As well as documentary sketches, he kept spirits up by producing a series of cartoons, some of which satirised his captors.
