Experiences of Quorn airman in Penang

Loughborough Echo - 5th October 1945

L.A.C Clarence Armstrong, whose home is at 78 Station-street, Quorn, writes from Penang, where he is now stationed after some time in Burma.

He was one of the first British to land, being one of the guard of the peace envoy, and tells of the tremendous enthusiasm of the people when they landed. Everything is to be had in plenty at Penang, except for cigarettes, which are almost a currency, for a good watch can be purchased for 100 cigarettes.

In spite of the rough time he had in Burma he is in good health and looking forward to home again. Before joining up he worked as a painter for Mr Goddard of Loughborough.
