Throughout 2017 IWM London will be holding meet the author sessions.
Authors Pat Davies and Jean Argles will be signing copies at IWM London of 1000 Days on the River Kwai.
Pat Davies and Jean Argles wrote the postscript to their father’s memoir, 1000 Days on the River Kwai. Colonel Owtram was a former prisoner of war of the Japanese. After being captured in Singapore and transported to the infamous Burma railway he was appointed the British Camp Commandant at Chungkai, one of the largest POW camps. Many ex-prisoners testified to the mental and physical courage that he showed protecting POWs from the worst excesses of their captors.
