Fall of Singapore

February 15, 2017 marks the 75th anniversary of the fall of Singapore in World War II.

The lives of those who died and suffered during the fall of Singapore, in World War II, were remembered at a commemoration of the 75th anniversary.

The 75th anniversary of the surrender is a reminder of how the US and Australia forged a long-lasting partnership. About 130,000 allied troops were taken prisoner, including 15,000 Australians, when Japanese forces streamed into Singapore across the Straits of Jahore in February 1942.

Governor-General Sir Peter Cosgrove joined hundreds of others at a ceremony to mark the moment, recognised as Britain's worst 20th century military loss.
