Scope and Contents

Outline for a television screenplay set in Changi Gaol inspired by the Double Tenth incident. On 10 Oct. 1943, civilian internees were arrested and tortured by the Japanese military police, who mistakenly believed that they had helped to instigate a raid upon Singapore Harbour.

Churchill had fought in the First World War and been imprisoned by the Germans. The file includes two caricatures, the first entitled 'Double Dose: a comparison in incarceration' which features a Japanese and a German soldier. The second is of Karl Niemeyer, the German commander of Holzminden prisoner-of-war camp during World War I. (3 sheets).
