Cowra-2 by annied


Cowra is home of the largest prisoner of war breakout in modern military history. At 1.50am on 5 August 1944, over 1000 Japanese prisoners launched a mass escape from the Prisoner of War Campsite. 231 Japanese prisoners and four Australian soldiers lives were lost.
This is along Sakura Avenue looking out across where the P.O.W camp was.
Beautiful view. And an interesting bit of history on the place 👍
