The Centre for Battlefield Archaeology at Glasgow University has teamed up with the National University of Singapore and Singaporean government to launch a new year long project assessing the potential for battlefield archaeology from the fall of Singapore in 1942. We are currently entering the research phase of the project. It is hoped this work will pave the way for other similar studies around the region.

The proposed case study is on the defence of Adam Park estate by 1st Battalion Cambridgeshires from 12th to 15th February 1942. The aim is to understand why the estate was such a difficult position for the Japanese to take and does it tell us anything about the course of campaign had Percival insisted on fighting to the last man.

Any members having information as to the field works and defence of the estate are welcome to contact the project manager, Jon Cooper at jonalicooper@googlemail.com. We are particularly interested in contacting veterans and relatives of those who fought in the engagement.
