“This amazing survival story tells how Jim Wright, a Norfolk gamekeeper’s son aged 23, managed to evade capture by the Japanese during the last few days of the battle on the Malayan mainland.  It goes on to describe how Wright, wounded in the foot and finally abandoned by his wounded comrades, struggled alone for two months to survive and to rejoin his comrades on Singapore Island, not knowing that they had already surrendered.”
