20 September 2010

Martyn Day, senior partner of Leigh Day & Co, was saddened to hear of the death of Arthur Titherington at the week-end.  Martyn acted for Mr Titherington and many former Japanese prisoners of war during the 1990s as they pressed the British government for compensation for the terrible suffering they experienced during the second world war. In 2000 the Government announced that some 6,000 survivors and 4,000 widows would be paid £10,000.

Martyn said:

“He was a fabulous character and indomitable in the fight that lasted for some eight years.  It was a privilege to know him and an honour to be able to help him and the PoWs he represented.  He will be sadly missed. The thoughts of the firm are much with with his family today”.
