This Day in History: 1942-08-14

In Singapore 2nd Loyals, who since the surrender in February had been Prisoners of War in Changi Prison Camp, are paraded for medical inspection, disinfected, then embarked on the cargo ship Fukai Maru. They have elected to be moved as a unit to Japan, but instead will find themselves in Korea, where most of them will spend the rest of WWII.
