Fort Canning Park (Singapore) memorial plaques
« on: Monday 08 May 06 19:53 BST (UK) »
Hello All,

I am transcribing the memorial plaques from the Fort Canning Park,
http://picas.nhb.gov.sg/public/internetSearch/index.jsp

Here is summary of first 100 inscription (some 70 left)- names and dates,
sometimes place of birth (place of death is always Singapore).

If anybody interested, will post the inscriptions themselves (have to re-format
them from Word's 15 pages).

Cheers
Mike
