Author(s): Ian W. Shaw

Miscellaneous

When Singapore fell to the Japanese in 1942, amongst the evacuees who scrambled to leave were 65 Australian nurses. They boarded a coastal freighter named the Vyner Brooke, which was sunk by the Japanese. The shipwreck survivors marooned on Radji Beach, including 22 nurses, voted to surrender, but were all killed by the Japanese. Only one survived.
