The Argylls and the Disaster of Singapore 1942

80 years on from the Fall of Singapore in February 1942. Listen to Lieutenant Colonel ALS Boswell as he discusses the events which led to the capture of the men of the 2nd Battalion Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders.

“To lose the initiative in the jungle is death. The real pressure was having to anticipate the next move of the Japanese in the fast flowing battles operating a series of running ambushes during the fighting retreat” – Lieutenant Colonel Ian Stewart

Thank you for watching our Winter Lecture Series. We would not be able to do events such as this if it were not for the kind donations from people like you. You can find the donation button below and we very much appreciate anything you would be able to give in order to support the museum.
