Today in Singapore we followed the retreating British and the advancing Japanese through Bukit Brown. The defending line was held by the Suffolk regiment who had been rerouted here instead of Egypt and faced an unknown terrain. The road to the cemetery is also the location of the only tank battle in Singapore from ww2. As we carried on through the cemetery we came to the houses on Mount pleasant where the final battles took place just hours before the surrender. Many soldiers, British, Indian, other allied as well as Japanese would have been buried right there. Some bodies were later recovered and moved while others remain. Civilians killed during the air raids that started the same time as pearl harbour or during the Japanese advance are also buried on the grounds. These at least got gravestones though the hurried burials are evident.
