The Remarkable Story of C W Steel:  Japanese POW 

Charles Steel had the misfortune to take part in two great military disasters of the Second World War - the retreat of the BEF culminating in the Dunkirk evacuation, and the Fall of Singapore.   Shortly before the latter, he married my mother, Louise.   Within days of being captured by the Japanese, he began writing a weekly letter to his new bride as a means of keeping in touch with her, in his mind. 

I have inherited these diaries.   Part love letters, part diary, they describe the horrors of working as a slave on the infamous Burma-Siam railway and in particular the construction of the famous Bridge over the River Kwai.   My illustrated talk brings to life an uplifting story of a London Stockbroker who recorded both beauty and reality and shows how people can maintain their morale under even the most extreme adversity.
