The Team

RFHG is made up of a small team of academic and family researchers who have a passion for sharing, remembering – and learning from – stories of Far Eastern captivity during the Second World War. We are:

Dr Bernice Archer; Keith Andrews; Professor Geoff Gill; Meg Parkes, MPhil; Mike Parkes; Martin Percival; Michiel Schwartzenberg; Emily Sharp

Between us, we have published on a range of topics and undertaken various engagement projects in relation to histories of captivity across Southeast Asia. A selection of these are listed below.
