Army form N 1475 C

This image shows an interrogation certificate which forms page 4 of a World War II army document entitled 'Air Movement Instruction Passengers ex India'. The interrogation certificate was issued to John Cameron Gordon of the Royal Signals.

Signalman John Gordon was from Muir-of-Ord, Ross-shire, and while serving with the 9th Indian Division at Kuala Lumpur, was captured by Japanese soldiers. He spent several years as a prisoner of war, before being released in September 1945.

The interrogation certificate states that Signalman Gordon was interrogated in September 1945 and 'form Q has been completed to the best of his ability.' Upon their return, many prisoners of war were expected to complete a liberation questionnaire. The questionnaire enquired whether the released prisoner had witnessed or had any knowledge of war crimes. If so, then the prisoner was required to complete form Q.

After the war years, John Gordon went on to become the proprietor of the music shop, 'The Record Rendezvous', located at Church Street, Inverness.
