Malay Navy In WWII - Casualty Roll

I have been asked by visitors to my blog to assist them to find out information on their loved ones that served in the Malay Navy either in the Royal Navy (Malay Section) or Malayan RNVR. Unfortunately I am not an official archivist and myself only do my research from open sources, so I usually are not able to entertain their requests. Nonetheless I find this naval history website to be a good resource for data on the fighting men and ships in World War II so I suggest that you start your research there.

Nonetheless I have compiled herewith a list of casualties of the Malay Seamen who made the ultimate sacrifice during the war. I am proud but also sad to note that some of our men ultimately died as Prisoner of Wars, especially since the Japanese had given them a chance for freedom during the Singapore Surrender if they had demob. Ultimately they chose to honour their service and uniforms and when into the gallows with their servicemen with their homeland in sight. In this case, I do not list the British seamen who perished together with them as their rolls would be more easily accessible from the British Admiralty, thus here only Malay seamen are proudly listed. Do note that casualty dates run to after the end of the war, i.e, 1946 as presumably that is the time the casualty was reported to the Admiralty after the records could be updated. In addition the accuracy of the data is totally dependent on the website. For an explanation to the abbreviations used, please refer to this webpage.
