Changi Photographer ' by Tim Bowden.

Even before he became a prisoner of war of the Japanese in Singapore in 1942, George Aspinall was nicknamed 'Changi" Aspinall by his 2/30th Battalion mates.

At lights-out time in Birdwood Camp Singapore, George was invariably 'down at Changi Village ' helping to process photographs he and his friends had taken of their new and exotic tropical surroundings.

After the Fall of Singapore and the surrender, their photographic hobby became a private obsession that saw George not only taking secret photographs in the Changi area, but up on the appalling Thai/Burma Railway. He not only took photographs at great risk, but also processed them on the spot. Using chemicals smuggled in medicine bottles from Singapore.

This book shows these photographs together with text explanation.
