    My Grandfather was held in Changi POW camp.
    Can anyone point me to some facts about Changi POW camp, any good sites or the like-it would be most appreciated...

    I'm also looking for details on the people who were held there, and to see if there is anyway I can contact them to ask if they knew my grandfather...

    Buy "King Rat" by James Clavell. One of my absolute FAVOURITE books. I read it again and again, and still enjoy every line.

    I've seen Changi for myself. Must have been an awful place when used as a POW camp.
