Prisoner of War autograph book

Forced Labour

Description
This autograph book belonged to my brother-in-law, via his uncle, James Jepson. It then passed to my sister. The author lived in Darwin and was a relation, probably my brother-in-law's uncle. It contains drawings and poems and notes from K. 89 prisoner of war camp, with British, French, Canadian and Australian prisoners, who were made to work as miners. One Frenchman did a series of drawings, particularly of women. The front and back inside boards contain marine scenes, including a sketch of the Franconia.
