When the Japanese launched their 'impossible'attack on the jewel in Britain's far eastern crown William was there waitingfor them ... but not from the direction they came... Hidden amongst the big stories of World WarTwo are countless smaller ones, that are no less significant to those affected,but are easy for us to overlook.
