In my father's effects there was part of an old notebook or scribbler containing several hand-written poems. They are all in my Dad's writing, but there is no indication who actually composed them. There is one exception: A Prisoner's Return is credited to RSM Keenan.

These poems in themselves are an illuminating documentary of life in the far East during the war. Well worth a read.

In some cases I had to guess at the words, so the transcriptions may not be exact.

If anyone has any information as to the author of any of these poems, please contact me. It is quite possible that Dad wrote some himself, but I never saw this side of him as I grew up.
