Diary of Corey, Jack Warren
Original handmade bound diary with loose pages kept by Sgt Corey while a prisoner of war in Changi, Singapore. The diary commences in November 1941 upon his arrival in Johor in Malaya, then covers the fall of Singapore in February 1942 and his internment as a prisoner of war of the Japanese in Selarang Barracks, Changi. Corey describes the food, conditions, illness, work parties, and movements - including to Thailand and Burma. The diary concludes at the end of 1944.
