John Dunn

Marine

HMS Prince of Wales

 

John Dunn died on 22nd June 1944 in Kinkaseki POW Camp Formosa (Taiwan), he is buried in Sai Wan War Cemetery Hong Kong Grave V11 F 26. He was exhumed and re-interred after the war. He is buried near my uncle William Singleton, 88th Field Regiment Royal Artillery. They both died in a roof fall whilst working in the copper mine near the camp, slave labourers for the Emperor of Japan. I laid a wreath on each of their graves during my visit to Hong Kong last year. They were great mates according to a survivor of the camp Jack Edwards.
A man is not dead until he is forgotten.
These men are not forgotten.
