Singapore Cenotaph

World War 1 & 2 - Roll of Honour with detailed information
Compiled and Copyright © Chris Collier & Martin Edwards 2005

The Singapore Cenotaph is close to the entrance to the Singapore River in the park area before the old Singpaore Club. It commemorates both World War 1 and World War 2 but only contains the names of those who died during World War 1. The two World Wars are on opposite sides of the memorial and each year of the war is carved into an individual step of the memorial.

2nd LIEUTENANT STANLEY BENSKIN HENSON, SPECIAL RESERVE, attd. 1st BATTN. PRINCE ALBERT'S (SOMERSET LIGHT INFANTRY), who was killed in action at the end of the year 1914, aged twenty-seven years, was the only son of Dr. and Mrs. Henson, of 2, Derby Street, Mayfair, and of Elmsett Hall, Wedmore.

He was educated at King's School, Bruton, and Pembroke College, Oxford, and obtained an appointment in the Colonial Police some six years before his death, being stationed in Singapore and Penang.

The officer commanding the battalion gave the following details: “As to the manner of your son's death, I can only tell you that he died as a very brave man. He was leading his men in the attack on the German trenches, and had outstripped the rest of his company by about twenty yards, when he was shot through the heart and killed instantly. Those of his company who were fortunate enough to come out of the action alive speak in the highest terms of your son's courage. He is a great loss to the Regiment.'”

Extract from The Bond of Sacrifice Volume 2 January-June 1915:

LIEUTENANT HECTOR ALAN LANE, 1st BATTN. EAST LANCASHIRE REGT., who was killed in action on the 13th May, 1915, near Ypres, was the only son of John Lane, of Cullisse, Park-stone, Dorset.

He was born on the 2nd June, 1889, at Decorah, Iowa, in the United States of America, and was educated at Newton College, Newton Abbott, where he obtained a scholarship from the Law Society, and eventually became a solicitor.

In March, 1907, he received a commission in the Dorsetshire R.G.A. Volunteers, with which he served until 1911, when he went out to Singapore to practise his profession. While there he joined the Singapore Volunteer Artillery, and at the outbreak of the war he, with two other officers, was put in charge of a fort. He wrote to England and offered his services to the War Office, which were accepted, and he was gazetted 2nd Lieutenant in the East Lancashire Regiment in September, 1914, as "a candidate from the self-governing Dominions and Crown Colonies," becoming Temporary Lieutenant in November and Lieutenant in December, 1914. He reached London in January, 1915, and was posted to the 1st Battalion, East Lancashire Regiment, with which he served until his death.

His Colonel wrote of him: “I am very grieved to inform you that your son was killed on the 13th instant. On the evening of that day he led his platoon against a farm occupied by the Germans; he got in all right with his men, and was exchanging shots with them in the farm buildings when he was shot in the head and died at once He was only with us a short time, but quite long enough to show what stuff he was made of. He was a valuable officer, and did his work very well, and I am very sorry to lose him. He made himself very popular with all ranks. He is buried at the farm he took, which is 1,200 yards north of Wieltje, a village north-east of Ypres.

Extract from The Bond of Sacrifice Volume 2 January-June 1915:

LIEUTENANT ROBERT ARTHUR DOUGLAS McCULLOCH, 1st BATTN. THE KING'S OWN (ROYAL LANCASTER REGIMENT), was the eldest son of Lieutenant Colonel T. McCulloch M .B.,R.A.M.C., and a grandson of the late Archdeacon French, of Mauritius.

He was born at Dover on the 17th July, 1895, and was educated at Wellington and the R.M.C., Sandhurst, receiving his commission in October, 1911, and being promoted Lieutenant in February, 1915. He served with his battalion at the front, near Ypres, from November, 1914, till he fell, having been appointed Hand Grenade Officer to his company in March. He was killed on the 2nd May, 1915, near Ypres, while bravely leading his men in action.

A brother Officer, recounting the circumstances, said: “The advanced trench was commanded by Lieutenant Greenwood, and your gallant boy went forward with reinforcements and met his death in front of his men. It may be a consolation to you to know that death was instantaneous. He was buried near to the place where he fell. Your boy was belovd by us al], both for his personality and for his splendid soldierly qualities. He was very happy in his all too short life with the Regiment, and we shall miss him sadly." Another officer spoke of how universally popular he was, both with his brother officers and men, in the 3rd and 1st Battalions of the Regiment. One of the men, speaking of him, said: “Mr. McCulloch is a fine young man, and a very gallant one, too." His Commanding Officer said he had been doing real good work, and he had recently sent his name in for gallant conduct in helping to rescue men when the Germans blew in a (British) mine at Le Touquet. He went most gallantly, without any orders from his Commanding Officer, to get back a house out of which the Germans had driven our men by the use of gas.
