Take the time while you are at Launceston Farm to visit this fascinating and poignant exhibition recently opened at the Royal Signals Museum in Blandford by Patti Lomax, widow of “The Railway Man” Eric Lomax.
The newly released World War II film starring Colin Firth and Nicole Kidman, who plays Patti, tells the extraordinary and epic true story of Eric Lomax, a British Army officer who is tormented as a prisoner of war at a Japanese labour camp during World War II. Decades later, Lomax discovers that the Japanese interpreter he holds responsible for much of his treatment is still alive and sets out to confront him, and his haunting past. Unmissable.
