    “We took nine prisoners [including Jack Haberfield & fellow Kiwi Evan Baxter] from Changi and executed them with ‘Japanese swords. The bodies were put in a boat, prepared beforehand, and sunk with weights attached. Now that the responsibility must be borne out publicly I herby pay for my deeds with suicide.” - Major Kataoka Toshio

    Grateful to each of you for taking time to comment Gentlemen.
    My primary aim here was to honour the legacy of this young man & his fellow POWs.
    They all should have returned home with tales for their grandchildren.
    Instead they became a sad post script... :-(
    In Memoriam.
