On 15 February 1942, after bitter fighting in Malaya, on Singapore Island and at sea, the British and Commonwealth Forces in Singapore surrendered to the Japanese Imperial Forces. As a result of these defeats some 50,000 British troops were taken into captivity. In August 1945, following the dropping of the atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Japan surrendered to the Allied Forces. Soon after, Singapore, Malaya, Siam and Burma were reoccupied and the horrific fate of the 50,000 prisoners of war was fully discovered.

This group had been imprisoned by the Japanese for three and a half years in indescribable conditions, with the bare minimum of dietary intake, and more often less than the bare minimum. The food was rice and it was noticeable that within a short time, every cat disappeared. Everybody started showing signs of malnutrition and various diseases were manifest. It became evident that it was a battle to survive; little or no protection against the elements, only the medical care which they could improvise themselves and exposed to all manner of tropical and other diseases.
