Lieutenant-Colonel Philip Toosey was the senior British officer at Tarmakan, where the Japanese forced the prisoners to construct a railway bridge over the River Kwai for the Burma-Siam Railway.

The Royal Fusiliers (City of London) were now a single Battalion and were part of the 28th Commonwealth brigade sent to fight in Korea August 1952 to July 1953, their most famous member being actor Michael Caine aka Private Maurice Micklewhite R. Even before the conflict, Korea, previously part of the Japanese Empire which had been divided by the 38th parallel between Communist North and Pro-Western South in 1945, was desparately poor. After three years of fierce fighting between Mao Tse-Tung’s Chinese and the North against the UN forces, it had been blown to pieces.
