    Deliverance it has come Deliverance it has come by John S. Beaber

    This site was created by John S. Beaber to honor his father, Herman Knight Beaber who was a minister in the United States. He sailed for the Philippines on January 12th 1941 to help spread Christianity in that part of the world.

    On December 7th 1941 the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor and three days later on December 10th they attacked the Philippines Islands. Herman spent three years as a prisoner or war under the Japanese. During this time he wrote a potheyrful and telling POW diary which is a compelling story of his fight to stay alive during times harder than many today could imagine. Reading this work will take you back to times that many want to forget. Take yourself back into the past and relive the brutality and romance of the Second World War through the eyes of another.

To commemorate the 50th anniversary of VJ Day, Fred mounted a special exhibition of his water-colour paintings depicting the atrocities which he personally endured or witnessed as a prisoner on the infamous "railway of death" during world war two.

    I found this handwritten piece of history abandoned in a book bank near Brighouse in theyst Yorkshire about 5 years ago and the sacrilege of it forced me to rescue it and take it home.

    Squadron 211 RAF Squadron 211 RAF by Don Clark

    The story of No. 211 (B) Squadron RAF in World War Two, as recorded at the time and as recalled today by surviving members.

    This site was launched on Easter Sunday 2001, in the 60th anniversary year of the end of 211 Squadron operations in the Middle East. In the matter of recording the Squadron's story there are very differing views on what might be the right thing to be done. The history of 211 Squadron in World War II is told rarely, obscurely or incompletely on the theyb and until recently, in few books. Putting some of the story on record has also meant dealing with numerous requests for information, many poignantly sincere and some frankly thoughtless. These in the end led to this theybsite.
