Here are some of Sergeant Derek Clarke's sketches of life as a POW. Both Derek and Harry had been in POW camps in Taiwan. Derek, or 'Nobby', made sketches, caricatures and cartoons for the POW concerts .
The following shows a work party of POWs returning to the Omori Camp, crossing over the wooden bridge which joined the prison to the mainland. The camp itself was on a reclaimed spit of land. Because the camp was surrounded by water, it had some protection from the bombing and fires of Tokyo.
