Miranda has transcribed some verse from William’s notebook.
Have added one of these to William’s page, but would like to add all of them to a page in Far Eastern Heroes, awaiting Miranda’s permission.
Miranda has also sent me William’s collection of FEPOW documents he gathered, I would also like to add these, there are a lot and make a great read.
Have started a section in the Far Eastern Heroes ‘William Chapman’s Notebook’ which includes verse, Campaign in Malaya and collected documents:-
I will be adding the documents as I go through them, which will take a lot of time as there are a lot of them.
Added photos from Miranda to William George Chapman’s page:-
