    PATCHESA, Harold Arthur - he is listed as having died of Beriberi whilst a Japanese PoW in Borneo, during the second Sandakan march from Sandakan to Ranau:

    The others who died seem to be commemorated on the Memorial at Labuan War Cemetery - why would he on the Runnymede Memorial...?

    Regards
