Especially remembering Rodborough’s Herston Chandler who died as a POW in Japan.
The Citizen, 21st September 1943
News has been received by his wife that Gunner Herston Chandler R.A., only son of Mr & Mrs Herbert Chandler of Walkley Hill, Rodborough, Stroud has died from dysentery while a prisoner in Japanese hands. Gunner Chandler was captured in Java at the end of 1941 and his relatives heard nothing about him until about two months ago when a notification was received through the international Red Cross association that he was a prisoner. His father is head of the wine & spirit department of Stroud Brewery and is a prominent member of the Special Constabulary.
