From the Gaeltacht to Galicia: A Son's Tale

Murray, Paul
As a POW of the Japanese for 42 months in Singapore and Japan between 1942 and 1945, the author’s father – Major Francis J. Murray – kept a secret diary in the form of love letters to the woman who was to become his wife. In 2017 his son Paul used this diary to follow in his father’s footsteps to both countries and, with the help of a guide and an interpreter, visited what remains of the six camps on the northern Japanese island of Hokkaido where the men were imprisoned.
