Army Guidance Notes for Ex-prisoners of War

This image shows Army guidance notes for ex-prisoners of war. The notes give guidance on how to claim for currency and effects lost as a result of capture. This includes currency and personal effects confiscated by the enemy, personal effects left in prison camps and personal effects, family or household items lost as a result of the occupation of territory by the enemy.
The guidance notes were the property of John Cameron Gordon of the Royal Signals, an ex prisoner of war. Signalman Gordon, while serving in Malaya, was captured by Japanese soldiers. He spent a period of three years as a prisoner of war before being repatriated in 1945.

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