Pte. David John Wighton Larter

British Army 6th Btn. Royal Norfolk Regiment


(d.9th July 1943)

My mother, Olive Hunt married her childhood sweetheart, David Larter, just two weeks before he sailed for Singapore. He enlisted with his three best friends, these were, his half-brother Edwin Sabberton, my mum's brother Tom Hunt and her sister's husband Horace Crisp. They were all captured by the Japanese and sent to work on the Thai-Burma railway. Only two of them returned home at the end of the war, these were Tom Hunt and Horace Crisp. David and Edwin's war graves are in the Kanchanaburi cemetary in Thailand.
