Description

Probably Singapore. 1945. A British or Australian prisoner of war (POW) in a seriously emaciated state being treated by a British nurse in a military hospital. This soldier's condition is typical of the many POW's who suffered harsh treatment from their Japanese captors. (Donor B. Theobald)
