John Barrett

John BarrettJohn Barrett’s daughter Jane gave me a fascinating insight into just how deeply her father had been affected by captivity, when she came to the UK on a trip from New Zealand.

Jane was just five years old when her father returned, but he didn’t stay at home long. He was soon off again, to walk from camp to camp. Jane told me this three-month footslog was his way of getting the experience out of his system.
