Michael Pether of New Zealand has carried out an extensive amount of research on the topic of the evacuation of Singapore in February 1942. Anyone interested in this topic would benefit greatly from reading his work. Below is listed some of the research that Michael has done to date – 2021.
Among the most studied of the ships is the Vyner Brooke. In order to accommodate the large file volume that this research takes up we have had to split the file into two parts. Part One consists of an overview of the research that has been accomplished to date along with Michael Pether’s own original and very important contribution. This document can be accessed HERE. The second part consists of as complete an inventory of those who were on board the ship as it is possible to make and this can be accessed HERE.
