The Ex-Prisoners of War and Relatives Association has existed since July 1942.

During the Second World War, the Association helped and supported families concerned for loved ones who were prisoners of war. When the Second World War ended, former prisoners of war joined the Association for support and camaraderie.

Today, the Association works to assist ageing prisoners of war and their families. They work to ensure the memory and service of all those who have been a prisoner of war is not forgotten.
