Army form N 1475 C

This image shows page 5 of Army form N 1475 C, entitled 'Air Movement Instruction Passengers ex India '. The stamp at the top of the form shows the soldier to have been an ex- Far East Prisoner of War. 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The instructions state that part II of the soldier's A.B. 64 (service and pay book) has been withdrawn for the purpose of recording payments which will be made to him during leave.

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