Liberated Prisoner of War Coming Aboard HMCS Prince Robert
Liberated Prisoner of War Coming Aboard HMCS Prince Robert

Prince Robert, seen here in Manila, the Philippines, helped repatriate Canadians who had been held prisoner by the Japanese since December 1941.

In this photograph, members of HMCS Prince Robert's crew help lift a former prisoner of war on a stretcher (centre) out of the American landing craft (right) that has brought him to the ship. After experiencing poor living conditions, malnutrition, disease, and abuse, many were in poor health, and required extensive medical attention. Captivity had enduring medical consequences for many survivors, even after their liberation.
