Max (Eddie) Gilbert served with David, Eric and Fred Hutchins on Ambon Island. He was one of only 126 Australian prisoners of war to return home from the original 1200 strong Gull Force. The prison camp named Tan Tui held the highest death rate for all Australian's in Japanese POW camps during the Second World War (over 75%). Max and his wife Jan came up from Boronia in Victoria for the unveiling. Max is 1 of 15 survivors left from the original 126 that returned home from Ambon and Hainan Island. Max dedicates a lot of his time to talking with family members, who have lost loved ones.
