Campaign To Commemorate VJ Day

Posted on June 21, 2019

Ron Mockford, 97, from Bulkington near Coventry, was captured by the Japanese in Java and held for three and a half years. During that time he worked on the infamous Burma Railway.
A petition has been set up by the Children and Families of Far East Prisoners of War (Cofepow), calling for a national day commemorating the significance of 15th August 1945.
They want it to have the same recognition as VE Day – Victory in Europe Day.
