The surrender of Singapore was a catastrophic loss for the Allies in the Second World War. New Zealand's very first air force fighter squadron, 488 Squadron of the RNZAF, was posted to Singapore just three months before it fell. This dynamic bunch of Kiwi fighters helped delay the enemy's advance as best they could with severely limited resources- and a good measure of Kiwi ingenuity. But the cost was high, and many would never discuss their experiences, never completely recover from that traumatic time. Now, the son of one of those servicemen tells of his father's war with 488 Squadron. Drawing on diaries, letters, and photos, many never before made public, Last Stand in Singapore documents a relatively unknown story from New Zealand's military history.
