Dear Tom,

Thank you for your email. I am always interested in articles on Chapei Camp, having been interned there with my Mother and Father. I was very little (about 1 1/2 years) and do not have clear memories of my time there.

My late father was Fred Stormes and my late mother was Olga Stormes. I was Mary Stormes.

We are eternally grateful to the Americans who freed us. Thank you.

I have a small handpainted picture that was done for me in Chapei. It is not signed and I would love to know who the artists were in Chapei. If anyone can help, I shall be very grateful.

Please add me to your distribution list. I would be very happy with this.

Kind regards,

Mary Devine

PS: Do not have a scanner and thus cannot scan the small painting, unfortunately.

If you would like to share any information about the Stormes Family
or would like to be added to my POW/Internee e-mail distribution list,
please let me, Tom Moore, know.
