Conference places filling fast!


There are still places available for the 6th International FEPOW History Conference – but do send in your reigstration form as soon as you can!

A  great range of international experts will be covering Singapore, Thailand, Borneo, exciting new digitisation projects, the effects of PTSD on veterans and their families and much, more more – we really do hope that you can join us for what promises to be another inspiring, moving and fascinating weekend.

‘For me a lot of the value in the RFHG conferences have been the small snippets of information & new ideas where to look – as well of course building relationships over time with people’ (Walter Tuttlebee).
