Taken prisoner in 1942 at the surrender of Singapore to the Japanese, Captain Horner kept a diary for the next three years of his experiences in the India Lines, the infamous Changi Gaol and on the Burma Railroad. Its discovery would mean certain death. This remarkable journal, with its lovely and amusing cartoons and drawings, is as life-affirming a document as you can find.

Ronald Horner was born in St Albans, Herts.He was called up in February 1940 and disembarked in Singapore in January 1942 and became a POW at the capitulation on 15 February.He was initially in India Lines Changi, proceeded to Thailand on loan to Japanese Thailand Administration and returned to Singapore on completion of the railway, first to Sime Road and latterly to Changi Gaol.He returned to the UK in 1945.His main interests were cricket, rugby, and charitable works.
