Bloody hell Tel, were your parents big into corporal punishment back then? Looks very much like that Japanese internment camp in the film, 'Empire of the Sun!' The part I recall, was when the commandant told them they were moving 600 miles to a 'Better Camp' as the fortunes of war changed, he neglected to say though, that they had to walk all the bloody way!! Turned into a death march I seem to recall, where they force-marched almost 10,000 dysentery suffering, starving POW's to an early death!!
There again though, I can't be too critical, I went to the Ogmore-by-sea, Summer school camp when I was about 12!! I knew it had cost my Mum a lot of bucks she could ill-afford, so, having suffered 8 days of cold, wet, and starvation rations, I told her when I got home, that I loved every minute of it
! The last laugh was on me though, she took me at my word, and managed to stump-up enough cash to send me for another week just 3 weeks later!! I didn't fully recover until about Mid December I seem to recall!
