Sir: Half a century on, the Japanese Labour Camp Survivors' Association are asking for "proper" compensation and renewed apologies using the "right" words.

Well, tough! War is war. At least they came back. My own father didn't come back. He was cut in two by a grenade while trying to help a wounded comrade. We didn't expect apologies, or compensation.

What if the Japanese ask for an apology and compensation for Hiroshima and Nagasaki?
