To Yvonne Masson Tucker,|
I am replying to your query for a lost person, which I saw on the Britain-Burma Society's Lost Relatives web page (http://shwepla.net/Misspers.mv). You said:
The person I am looking for is my oldest brother, Phillip Clifford Masson, of Maymyo. He was born in Mandalay on Aug. 17, 1920. Lost on trek out from Burma during Japanese invasion 1942. Last seen in Naba. Was travelling with his mother Connie, 4 sisters and 1 brother. Mother's brother Raymond de la Taste was also with the party. We had to cross a river in a boat and stopped for the night. The family went ashore to sleep and left Phillip behind in the boat with our possessions and the Burmese boatmen. Woke up in the morning and discovered the boat and everyone had vanished. After the war, tried to get help from American Red Cross to locate him with no luck.
