How can one fail to be moved by the sacrifice of so many for our safety? Yes we looked for the names of family - and found them.

I cannot tell you how I felt as my Father nearly died in the second world war aboard H.M.S. Prince of Wales at the battle for Singapore.

we went to look up family members, its quite a large area so it took us a while to find family members, but we did find them, lovely memorial to those that lost their lives, worthy of a visit even if you dont have family interest.
