Rate this:
November 1941. Lt Ralph Trewin, DSC, arrives at Singapore as second-in-command of the shallow-draughter HMS Porcupine. To Trewin, still shocked from wounds received during the evacuation of Crete, the gunboat and her five elderly consorts seem to symbolise the ignorance and blind optimism he finds in Singapore. And the Porcupine's captain is as unwilling as the rest to take heed of Trewin's alarm, for to him the gunboat represents his last chance. The following month, the Japanese invade Malaya, and in three months Singapore, the impregnable fortress, knows the humiliation of surrender. Through the despair of this bloody campaign, the little gunboat becomes a symbol of bravery and pride.
