Reports that John B. Powell, a newspaperman stationed in Shanghai during Japanese occupation has returned to Tokyo in order to testify to the conditions he witnessed during his time as a prisoner-of-war at the Bridge-House prison camp. He was ultimately repatriated to the United States in 1942 where he spent the following three years in a hospital as a result of the gangrene he contracted while imprisoned.
