Keeping the Candle Burning

FEPOW Family


 Please Read

Over the following months I will be carrying out a complete redesign of the websites I write.

Some of them have been in operation for over 25 years and require updating to make them easier to use.

Two of the sites will stay live:-

The parent site the 'FEPOW Family' plus the 'Roll of Honour'


Sorry for the inconvenience this might cause, but rest assured I will do my best to get them back ASAP.



The FEPOW Family has been established to research loved ones who suffered in the Far East during WWII.

It has space on its server to incorporate web sites which help us to understand Where, Why and How it affected our loved ones.



USS Orizaba

Tim Hemmings Interview

Convoy William Sail 12X

Having been in contact with Jeanne Moore in America, she was kind enough to send me a cini film of the USS Orizaba carrying the 9th Battalion, Royal Northumberland Fusiliers from Halifax to Bombay in the Convoy William Sail 12X.

There is some footage of the other ships in the Convoy taking 18th Division Troops to Bombay.

The film was taken by her father, US Navy Ensign Patrick William Moore of the USS Orizaba.

I have edited it as best as possible and the video has copyright.

Tim Hemmings interview with his daughter-in-law Sally Hemmings, has now been added to the footage of the SS Orizaba with Sally’s permission.

My sincere thanks to Jeanne and Sally for making this possible:-


The film has copyright.
