The Horror of War for Women

Agnes Newton was born in 1901 in Oak Park, Illinois, but before she could walk the family moved to Hollywood and then to Venice, California, where her father became one of the founders of the Del Monte Company. When Agnes was eight years old, she met Harry for the first time. Her younger brother Al had a British friend named Harry, whose family traveled the world. Harry traded postage stamps from around the world with her brother, and Agnes was enchanted by this boy with a beautiful smile, British accent and soft curly hair.

When Agnes was older and enrolled at the University of California at Berkeley, Harry soon followed, studying at the Forestry School. They dated all through college and seemed to be in love. At graduation Harry got a job in forestry work in the Philippine Islands, and on the night before he left he proposed to Agnes, but she turned him down, because she had gotten a job as a writer for the San Francisco Examiner, and wanted to be a career girl instead of a wife.

Ten years later Harry returned home for a visit before beginning a new job in British North Borneo to become the British Conservator of Forests and Director of Agriculture. He again asked Agnes to marry him, and this time she quickly accepted. They lived in a stately English style home in Sandakan beginning in 1934.

In 1939 they came home to Oak Bay, near Victoria British Columbia where they owned a home, for an extended leave before sailing for England and a refresher course on forestry at Oxford. Unfortunately, on September 3, 1939, World War Two began for Britain, so Harry was ordered to return immediately to his duties in Borneo.

On January 19, 1942, Agnes writes: “The storm-battered Japanese launches had anchored offshore the night before in the dark. Now they came to the wharf, they were landing. From that day until September 11, 1945, we were to live in captivity.” This movie is her story of her wartime captivity in a prison camp, written five years after her prisoner of war experience ended. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
