Part of the Memorial Park, Sandakan Sabah/Borneo, established in memoriam of over 2000 Australian and British POW’s who died while in captivity during WW2. Only 6 survived the notorious Sandakan death marches. This is on the site of the actual POW camp and is now well maintained with great dignity by the local people of Sabah.
This silohette panel is part of the “Lest We Forget” window panels in the pavillion. Behind the “cut-out” of the flower was tropical foliage, of which has been adjusted for colour, hue, and saturation in PS.

    Love that you have shown us a memorial most of us will never see. Thank you.
    Wondered if u are aware that there is a group called Public Art that this would slot into.
    It is so beautiful that it needs to be seen. JMHO

  • I am glad that I could share this with yourself and many others – years ago while interested in war and what hapened, I never really understood just how moving these places are, and how we can all learn the futility of these wars

    Our family was touched by war when my uncle was in Changii, He is dead now and the rest of his life was affected by the depredations he suffered as a result of his incarceration. War is like cancer and it seldom leaves people untouched even if they do not always realise it at the time
