This talk will be given by Nillumbik U3A member Terry Beaton.

In 1999, ex-Army Engineer Terry became first Australian Curator at Hellfire Pass Memorial Museum on the Burma Railway in Kanchanaburi Province, Western Thailand. He has also led many ANZAC Pilgrimages to both Thailand and Burma ends of the line, and later to Sandakan in Sabah (North Borneo).

Learn the actual history and cost of the infamous ‘Burma to Siam Rail Link’ built by multi-national POWs and forced Asian slave labour for the Japanese invasion of India during WW2.
