Wreath-laying ceremony to commemorate the Fall of Singapore


Wreath Laying

High Commissioner Kwok Fook Seng laid a wreath during the Last Post Ceremony at the Australian War Memorial on 15 February 2019, commemorating the 77th anniversary of the Fall of Singapore.  During the Ceremony, we remembered two brothers, Private Arthur Cotton and Private Roy Cotton, who served as part of the 2/19th Australian Infantry Battalion during the Second World War.  High Commissioner Kwok was accompanied by his wife, Mrs Pearl Kwok and Defence Adviser Colonel Kevin Chin, who had the opportunity to convey their gratitude to their two sisters and other family members in attendance.  The link to the video stream of the ceremony is below.
