Your all so helpful thank you.

I have downloaded this document from COFEPOW. All i need is the camps he was in. The first i'm sure i know-- Its Changi.

Good luck

Mary

Looks like Chung hai - presumably Chung Kai - and Bankein

I would tend to agree with Changi (my Dad was there with the RAF).  Captured in Singapore, he wouldn't have been moved too far (initially) during this phase of the invasion. The Japanese had just come down the whole Malayan peninsula and Singapore fell towards the end of February '42.
