The book is for sale on Amazon but they charge so much in commission that we lose out financially, so please encourage people to order directly from the Club so that any profit goes to our FEPOW, wife and widow members. Please use the order form on this web site.


Poppy Scarves.

Poppy Scarves

We still have some poppy scarves available - for those of you who receive this in black & white print we have black, royal blue, pale turquoise, or white (sorry Navy blue has sold out). The small profit made will be added to Club funds.

These are £6 each including UK P&P - please contact us for payment/ordering details.


Cover of the Sumatra's Fittest.

Book - Sumatra's Fittest

This is a fascinating memoir of David Spero who was with the RAF, captured on Java and spent time in Boie Glodok, Tandjong Priok and Cycle Camp before being sent to Sumatra in May 1944 to work on the Pakanbaroe railroad.

Apart from learning about World War II history in the Far East, David Spero's memoir includes post war experiences of adapting to life afterwards and has lessons for us all, in how to approach life today and tomorrow.

The Spero family are kindly donating all proceeds from the book to the Java FEPOW 1942 Club. To obtain a copy, please visit where it is for sale currently at £12.99 and a Kindle version at £5.99. For other information, please contact David Spero's son Tony at
