Ever since Ernest had nightmares of this torturous time, and in 1985 he wrote the novel Tamajeo 241 as a dedication to his fallen comrades, and for the world to know the truth.

 

Died

Aged 90

14th January 2009.

Ernest was a survivor and battled to the end, as we all know any one that survived the Death Railway had to be made of a strong constitution.

The family are very proud of Ernest and will miss him terribly.
