Remembrance, Nation, and the Second World War in Singapore: The Chinese diaspora and their wars

Research output: A Conference proceeding or a Chapter in BookChapter

Abstract

On June 25, 2011, a group of 70 Malaysian and Singaporean Chinese set off from the Ee Hoe Hean Club in Singapore in a convoy of 21 private cars, bound for Kunming, China. The motorcade would take the same route as groups of overseas Chinese volunteers from Malaya had traveled along in the late 1930s, when they responded to a call by the Chinese government of the day to serve as drivers, mechanics, laborers, and nurses on the last land link between China and supplies from the outside world, the Burma Road.
