This plaque commemorates the repatriation of men, women and children who survived Far East captivity. During 1941 hundreds of thousands of the Allied Armed Forces left British ports to serve overseas. Many were destined to endure up to four years in captivity in the Far East. Several thousand did not return. Over 22,000 Far East prisoners of war and civilians returned to Southampton in 1945. For those who survived, the struggle continued long after they had returned home. These are the repatriation ships that arrived at Southampton between October and December 1945. Unveiled on 27 October 2013.
