Lady Mountbatten visits WA 1946


Lady Louis Mountbatten visits WA 1946.

Bill Hood WX7471 most likely saw Lady Mountbatten in Thailand, when she visited several POW Camps immediately after Japan’s surrender or possibly Singapore.




POWs spoke warmly of Lady Mountbatten.  She was not only the first white POWs had seen for many years, she arrived unannounced at the camps in Thailand, usually accompanied by a driver.
