Stan Church of the Hob in the Well on his return from a Japanese prisoner of war camp.

I knew Stan as a postman. I used to talk to him quite a lot when I was barman in the
club on the Millfleet. He used to tell me some horrific stories of his time in captivity.

Good looking bloke in his time. Do not know if picture was taken before or after captivity.

I do not want thanks for any research I am able to help out with. I just love doing it.

Hi John,
I see that these mails go back some years now but I could not resist responding.
The black and white photo of the coach prior to going to Loret is priceless.
I am familiar with nearly all of those there. One in particular Chris Owen who was a close friend for many years. Myself Chris and our wives spent many happy hours together both locally and also away on holiday. We had such plans for future times together. Unfortunately these plans were taken from us when Chris lost a brave battle with Cancer. This was in December 2016. He is sadly missed.
Kindest regards
Nuggets

While doing some searching at the library today I came across this picture of Stan taken on release from a
Japanese prison camp. I knew him and liked him. He suffered greatly in the camps.
