    Hi guys

    I wonder if you can tell me about my uncle: Gunner Harry Brown No 923527 135th (Herts Yeomanry) Field regt Royal Artillery, who died 9th April 1945 aged 24, of wounds, and is buried/commemorated in the Kranji War Cemetery in Singapore.

    Many thanks

    Regards

    Liam

    All I have are his basic POW details. Captured at the fall of Singapore and died April 1945. Thanks for your message on my profile Liam, sorry I can't help you more.

    Having slaved on the Railroad of Death, Harry had then been returned to River Valley Camp in Singapore. On 02/02/1945 he was herded into a hellship for transfer to Saigon, Vietnam.
    I believe his date of death of April 9th 1945 corresponds with the allied bombing of a train carrying POWs, resulting in many deaths. He was reburied in Kranji in 1954.
