'The Whistle': manuscript periodical produced in Changi Prisoner-of-War Camp
Scope and Contents
Subtitled, 'Leisure hour literature of D workshop'. Created by prisoners-of-war in Changi Gaol's D workshop, edited by Adrian John Clark, a British subject and, prior to his internment, legal adviser to the Federated Malay States government (died March 1944 at Changi) and secretly printed and bound in the Gaol Printing Shop. After the war, this copy of the periodical, thought to be the only copy in existence, was presented to Clark's widow, Marguerite. Approximately 34 pages, with hand-drawn illustrations and a colour painting titled 'Changi prison at dusk' by R.L. Pease.
