Tigers in the Park
Funk Holes of Singapore
After asking Jon about the Tunnels dug in Singapore in 1945 by the FEPOWs, Jon sent me this excellent article.
Since the release of the book ‘Tigers in the Park’ in 2015, there has been ongoing debates into various aspects of the research. One area that has promoted much interest is the digging of tunnels in and around the area of the Sime Road Camp and the reintroduction of POWs to the Adam Road work camp in the latter months of the war. One can only surmise this is primarily down to a fascination with exploring the hidden or ‘lost’ structures associated with the internment of the Far East Prisoners of War (FEPOWs) in Singapore. Much of this text has been taken from Chapter 34 of Tigers in the Park, 2015.
