New FEPOW Website

Posted on April 24, 2012 by

Introducing a new website of 300 images dedicated to Des Bettany who served during WWII with Lancashire gunners on 25 pounders. Evacuated from Dunkirk and posted to North Malaya he was imprisoned at various sites around Changi. He painted to keep his sanity.

This artwork of his service life before and after the Capitulation of Singapore is a range of fascinating illustrations, done sometimes with humour.

This new website has been put together by Des’ family as a tribute and to help raise awareness of what the POWs went through, as seen through the eyes of one man, Des Bettany.

The site can be found at

Remember the 70th Anniversary of the Fall of Singapore occurred on February 15th 2012

Could you please promote this site among your members.
