Type memorial

Housed within Kranji War Cemetery the SINGAPORE MEMORIAL bears the names of over 24,000 casualties of the Commonwealth land and air forces who fought in South East Asia who have no known grave.  In many cases there is no known date of death within the records is recorded the date or period from when they were known to be missing or captured. The land forces commemorated by the memorial died during the campaigns in Malaya and Indonesia or in subsequent captivity, many of them during the construction of the Burma-Thailand railway.  Others were lost at sea while being transported into imprisonment elsewhere, victims of the American submarine campaign against Japanese shipping. The memorial also commemorates airmen who died during operations over the whole of southern and eastern Asia and the adjacent seas and oceans.
