    Get yourself a book called The Forgotten Highlander by Alistair Urquhart. It's about his time as a Japanese POW and how he and other POW's built the Burma Railway. What a book!

    I watched that the other week. Not quite what I was expecting. Basically a lot of lost and vulnerable souls. A couple of them seem to making a ‘recovery’ though, for want of a better word

    You should also, if you haven't already, read The Narrow Road to the Deep North.
