This day in history – 15 February 1942

Surrender

On 15 February 1942, the first day of the Chinese New Year, Lieutenant-General Arthur Ernest Percival, General Officer Commanding of Malaya Command, led a surrender delegation from the Battlebox to Ford Factory in Bukit Timah to discuss terms with Lieutenant-General Tomoyuki Yamashita of the invading Japanese 25th Army.

At 6.10pm, LG Percival signed a document of surrender, sealing the fate of a city of 1 million and an army of 120,000 men – the largest capitulation in British military history.

Today, we remember not just the surrender, but its factors and causes, and the sacrifices of the men and women who fought so hard to delay the inevitable.
