We are compiling our POW lists according to the following:
Roger Mansell has generously given us permission to use his well researched list of POWs.
Michael Hurst provided info on the original 100 British forces that came to Mukden. Of these 16 were from Australia and the rest from Britain.
Names of additional men were obtained from the book by Petak
The POW group from New Mexico has given us corrected information on the men who served in the 200th and 515 th CA
A copy from the US National Archives of the Japanese Roster of POWs held at the Mukden (Hoten) POW camp in Manchuria
Any additional information gleaned from the files at National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) which come from the American Defenders of Bataan and Corregidor (ADBC), the group representing all men held by Japan in Asia.
Interviews with POWs and questions asked of the families of deceased POWs
Books written by the POWs.
Despite our best efforts, there are certain to be errors. We would appreciate any corrections you can help us with.
We are putting up the POWs by the letter of the alphabet as soon as we have checked all our sources. If the format starts off with the name of the POW and the place where they enlisted, then we have worked through all our resources on it. If it starts with the name of the POW followed by , then it has not been as carefully checked.
Either way, we appreciate additional information and corrections.
We have had to limit the information presented to what we hoped would help people researching a specific individual. However, we would love to have a story about any of the men, similar to the ones on the website. These stories will be put on the website and added to the collection at the museum.
