WW2 Themed Literary Evening in Seletar - Fri 10 May

Come and join author and scriptwriter Liz Coward at her delightful Seletar home where she will share the story of her acclaimed World War Two memoir, Blood and Bandages. Over a selection of cheeses and a glass or two of wine (included in your ticket), Liz will describe the incredible work of the RAMC’s field ambulance and the moving story of one of its nursing orderlies, William Earl.

In addition, we are offering a special WW2 tour later in the year which will explore how medical care was provided coming up to and during the Japanese invasion of Singapore in early 1942. More information about this will be available at the Literary evening on May 10.

Bukit Brown: Tales of Sook Ching & Qing Ming

Join us for a pre-Qing Ming walk around the iconic Bukit Brown cemetery, the largest Chinese cemetery outside of China, with Claire Leow, co-founder of "All Things Bukit Brown."

It has been 76 years since the Sook Ching massacre, when some 50,000 Chinese men were murdered by Japanese troops in the early days of their Occupation in 1942. Hear the stories of personal bravery and sacrifice as well as those of communal action taken by the ordinary folk who pulled together in the wake of the shock of the Allied surrender and under the brutal reign of the Japanese.
