“To remember them is to honour them”
Welcome to the Researching FEPOW History (RFH) Group’s website and blog. The RFH group was founded in 2005 with the aim of bringing together all those interested in researching Far East POW history, a still little-known aspect of WWII history.
We do this by organising conferences approximately every two years. Details of events held to date can be found by selecting “Conferences” above. Up to 75% of our audience are family historians; the remainder comprise professional and academic researchers, students, authors and historians. We attract leading authorities from around the world to share their research into Far East captivity during WWII. Please share your interest in this history with others who visit this website or who attend our conferences. We hope we may welcome you to the next one.

“…the Researching FEPOW History Conference plays an extremely important role in maintaining an interest in FEPOW history, encouraging good quality academic research and fulfils the duty of acknowledging and appreciating the men and the sacrifice that was made by the FEPOWs and ex-internees.”
