  • Description

    The island of Singapore -- off the southernmost tip of the Malay peninsula in south east Asia, fell ignominiously and almost without resistance to Japanese attack during World War Two. In those days it was a British colony, but since it became independent in 1965 an energetic government policy of self-reliance has turned it in to an extremely well-defended island fortress. Tony Joyco of the Australian Broadcasting Commission watched the Singapore armed forces going through their paces on manoeuvres recently. Here's his report.
