‘Joe Borrow shared the fate of so many of his generation.
Born during a war, grew up in a depression and killed in another war.
He did not know what it was like to have a secure job, home and family of his own.
And like so many other victims of war, his remains lie in foreign soil, far from his homeland.’
By Doreen Borrow.
Joe Borrow died of wounds aged 25 years received in action Singapore, 15 February 1942.
