Norman 'Nobby' Clark
My good friend Michael Pether writes from New Zealand...I recall when in Singapore a couple of years ago you took photographs of the original “Straits Times” I had with me covering the Japanese Surrender in 194. It was a copy kept by my grandfather ( Norman ‘Nobby’ Clark) who had been in Changi and Sime Road Camps and who was there on the day – he has actually marked himself on the photo on the last page. He was a n engineer at the Government Rice Mills in Singapore and had camped out in the Central Fire Station as an incorrectly classified ‘neutral in Japanese occupied Singaporefor five months until rounded up in July 1942.
