Phil,
A list of Far East Manchester Regiment PoWs at The National Archives seems to show that your grandfather was living in Plymouth while his mother was living in Cheetham.
Unfortunately I cannot see when he traveled overland from Changi.

Many thanks for that.

I have signed up to find my past so hopefully will be able make some sense of this.

Mack,
Yes, I think you are correct - I missed the "arrow".
Apologies and best wishes.

Mack and Bob
The Plymouth address is his.
See the Roll of Honour for him: https://www.roll-of-honour.org.uk/regiments/Manchester_Regiment/html/h_database_29.htm
It is the hand written "Mother" etc that belongs below.
