Taken prisoner in 1942 at the surrender of Singapore to the Japanese, Captain Horner kept a diary for the next three years of his experiences in the India Lines, the infamous Changi Gaol and on the Burma Railroad. Its discovery would mean certain death. This remarkable journal, with its lovely and amusing cartoons and drawings, is as life-affirming a document as you can find.
