The newly revamped Changi Chapel and Museum (CCM) tells the stories of the military and civilian Prisoners of War (POWs) interned at the Changi prison camps during the Japanese Occupation. Personal stories and objects have been collected from former internees to emphasise their experience. CCM stands as a memorial to those who died in captivity and a tribute to the men, women and children who survived the ordeal. It is a place to reflect on the hardships the internees underwent as well as their courage and resilience in the face of such difficulties.

Artefact of the Month

Private A.C.Smith's shirt was signed by his mates upon completion of training in Wallgrove, Australia. They became part of Major General Frederick "Black Jack" Galleghan's battalion, known as the Galleghan Greyhounds. Upon arriving in Malaya during World War II, the Galleghan Greyhounds were the first Australian unit to ambush the Imperial Japanese Army. Their task was to be the shock absorbers, inflicting as many casualties as possible before falling back.

Finding themselves marching to the Changi prison camps with only the clothes on their backs and supplies they could carry, Private Smith carefully protected his prized item, this shirt, throughout the three-and-a-half year duration of captivity.
