A fantastic launch of The Tiger has Many Lives: The Story of Rod Wells by Pamela Wells at Victory Hall, Tatura, Vic; released on Anzac Day. It was an honour to edit, design and publish (Sevenpens) this biography of a POW survivor and to have worked with military advisor Lynette Silver AM.

From an early age in the Goulburn Valley, Rod Wells had a passion for wireless technology. He served in Malaya and Singapore as an officer with 8 Division Signals. As a prisoner of war in Borneo’s Sandakan, he used his ingenuity and skill to build a wireless radio and a transmitter virtually from scratch. Arrested by the Kempeitai, Rod was subjected to brutal torture before being tried and sent to the notorious Outram Road Gaol. After the war Rod became a world expert in electronics and neuclonics.

The story of Rod Wells is a remarkable tale of determination, endurance and survival in WW2. As one of the few first-hand accounts of POW life in Borneo’s Sandakan Camp and the equally infamous Outram Road Gaol in Singapore, this book will be a valuable addition to the nation’s military heritage.
