Diary of a POW in Singapore.

Found this site while looking for information on Father Aiden Jackson of the Gorton Monastery for Liverpool Annie.
Photos and sketches after the fall of Singapore.

It’s on the main National Archives of Singapore web site.

Thank's Timberman
Very moving.  I spent a long time on the site then on their National Archive site and associated photo site which I was not aware of before.
Thank's again.

Hi Annie
Had a similar effect on me when I read it. Sorry I didn’t find anything on your Father Jackson. Only found a little amount on the Gorton Monastery. Mainly modern history and the new web site. It’s like you said they are a bit elusive.
You’re very welcome Cliff, if I find any more I’ll post them.

Thank you so much for looking Neil !

I have quite a few Army Chaplains I'm looking for from Gorton ... Themonsstar helped me tremendously with my WW1 "Fathers" .... but I'm still looking for my WW2 !!

They're seemingly hard to find ... though I know Father Jackson will probably be the hardest !!

Thanks again for your help !

Annie  :)
