||<p>The Government and the nation continue to recognise and be thankful for all those
who served in the Far East during the Second World War. We recognise the sacrifices
made and the horrors to which our personnel were subjected.</p><p>The Ministry of
Defence (MOD) is committed to ensuring that ex prisoners of war from the Far East
Campaign remain in the public consciousness as much as those who served in other campaigns.
The MOD, in conjunction with The Royal British Legion, will look to mark the 75th
anniversary of 'Victory over Japan Day' on 15 August 2020 in an appropriate way.</p>
