This is John Sharp of Leicester and he is one of the few POWs of the Second World War to survive such extreme treatment under the Japanese. Sharp was captured while attempting to escape when being used as slave labor on the Burma-Siam railway. His punishment for being caught was being tortured for three years and two weeks in a Singapore gaol, where he spent twelve months in solitary confinement with little to no food.
