Barbed Wire and Bamboo

UNofficial "site" for
Ex-Prisoners of War Association of Australia

(above taken from BW&B newsletter masthead)

Thanks to a recent anonymous donation, the 2/18th Battalion (A.I.F.) Association, are receiving the newsletter of the above peak ex-POW Association.  On investigation, there is no online web site for the group, nor any online copy of the newsletters.  So we have provided this valuable service.

An important note appears in the recent (August 2014) newsletter and we include here as both explanation and seeking the missing newsletters (preferably already scanned as a PDF).  [refer to page 10 of the Aug 2014 issue.]

"Can you help with missing copies of the 'Barbed Wire and Bamboo' please?

For those of you who are unaware, sadly the South Australian Association is currently being wound up.

Much of relevant material from Ex-POW members is being donated to the SA Government Archives, and hopefully that will include a complete set of 'Barbed Wire and Bamboo'.  Unfortunately there are many missing copies.

Please contact Olywn Jones, if you are willing to donate any of the following editions to complete set".
