A retired senior Singapore civil servant brings together records and personal memories in this account of the Sikh Police Contingent (SPC) which was part of the British-run administration of Singapore and Malaya from 1879 to its disbanding in 1946. It shows how the SPC recruited in Punjab, was involved in the control of riots and rebellions in Malaya, in the 1915 Singapore Mutiny, in Kelantan and in riot control in 1930s. He discusses the sufferings and controversies associated with SPC's part as guards of POWs, recruits for the INA and themselves prisoners during the Japanese Occupation and the subsequent British report which led, perhaps unjustly, to the disbanding of the SPC. 295pp. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 047056
