  1. OK - we have a very famous Aussie, Japanese prisoner of war Tom Uren, who not only worked the Burma Thai death railway for three years, also got sent to Japan where he was 60kms from Nagasaki, and saw the sky change colour from the bomb. Mr Uren was captured by the Japanese in Timor in 1942 and after nine months in Koepang, a stint in Java and then a brief period in Singapore he was sent north to build the railway. He bore witness to the brutality and disease that killed 2650 of the 13,000 Australians who worked in the project. He suffered from amoebic dysentery. After the railway was built he was shipped to Japan to work in a copper smelting plant. He suffered malnutrition, contracted the tropical disease beriberi and, in August 1945, witnessed the atomic bomb being dropped on Nagasaki, He had spent three years as a prisoner of the Japanese, forced to work on the Burma-Thai death railway before being shipped to Japan to labour in copper and lead smelters. He was in a camp at Omura, about 60 kilometres from Nagasaki, when the sky discoloured. â€As I got to understand nuclear war and the nuclear industry I realised the dropping of those bombs on Japan was a crime against humanity,†he says.
  2. Notable Scottish Muslims[edit] Ali Abassi, Gaelic television presenter. Viscount Reidhaven, eldest son of the Earl of Seafield. Mushtaq Ahmad, lord lieutenant of Lanarkshire.

    The 2014 version of the SR has the kick starter still, it's pretty easy kick from all I have read, can be hand started. Electric starter is for scooters.
  6. Alfamaz, that is the one big problem with Agoda, no free call number, or even a chat number! If you do a search, there is a office in Bangkok you can call, but it's not publicized,
  7. Problem may be for me, I go direct as I use it so often it works out far better than Frequent Flyer points. one week away on work gives me two nights hotel albeit a far cheaper hotel, but i need to go direct to get that, me clicking your link wouldn't be worth my while
  8. I like Agoda, use it for work and get free hotel nights for the family. There is sometimes a glitch, the default date twice has been set to one year in advance, both times Agoda took the blame and fixed it for me.
  9. Not cheap but not over the top either, similar menu to Basilico but far better

  13. <<Miss Scotland was there and got her crown knocked off and the Lord Provost of Glasgow was there too. The whole thing was shocking and I am totally embarrassed about it. >> I agree, I wouldn't be caught dead with Miss Scotland ot the Lord Provost of Glasgow!
