Phil's WWII Pages

These pages can only show a tiny part of the complete history. If, however, they inspire even one person to read further, then I can consider the effort worthwhile. As William Shirer quotes at the beginning of his excellent book "The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich" the philosopher, Santayana, reminds us that.

Louis Creton farm - La Paradis

When the Totenkopf was advancing towards Merville, an isolated pocket of resistance from some British troops held up the advance they eventually surrendered due to their ammunition supply running out. It was at this time that the British raised the white flag to surrender. The Germans came forward to dis-arm them but someone opened fire on them.

Lest We Forget: The Railway of Death  

Lest We Forget: The Railway of Death by Fred Seiker

As a young man Fred was captured by the Japanese in the Far East and suffered as a prisoner of war on the notorious Thai-Burma railroad. To commemorate the 50th anniversary of VJ Day, Fred mounted a special exhibition of his water-colour paintings depicting the atrocities which he personally endured or witnessed as a prisoner on the infamous "railway of death" during world war two. It was a very moving exhibition which Fred mounted in memory of the many men who died on the railway and in the hope that such atrocities would never be repeated.
