Forgotten Names Recalled: The Singapore Cenotaph Project

'This eye-opening book from history writer Rosemary Lim humanises the past by collecting the lives and back-stories of all but 12 of the 124 names inscribed on the Singapore Cenotaph, a World War I memorial sited at the Esplanade precinct. Fascinating reading from an incomprehensible amount of research'.
Akshita Nanda, Sunday Times

'This treasure of a book ... casts light on the lives of the men whose names appear on the Singapore Cenotaph ... Of those 124 names, 112 have been recalled in this collection of insights and stories, painstakingly researched and put together by redoubtable local historian Rosemary Lim. ... This is not a book about the First World War, she says. It is about "the people who lived through the war, fought in it, intended to fight in it, died because of it, and those who carried on living, bereaved and changed in its aftermath." ... The resulting work makes an ideal addition to any history-lover's collection.'
Verne Maree, Expat Living Magazine
