Other Description:

A series of sketches from the appendices of the Battalion War Diary showing the disposition of troops on separate days during the defence of the Adam Park Estate

Historic Context:

The sketch maps were drawn in Changi by officers of the Cambridgeshires. The terrain was sketched from a road map of Singapore as all OS maps had by then been confiscated. The sketches show the location of battalion troops on the 14th and 15th February. Close ups show the exact deployment in the estate including the location of D and C Company as well as the Carrier platoon. BHQ is marked at No.7 and the RASC camp is clearly marked.
