Some members of the Battalion who were
sick, injured or wounded in action, were repatriated directly to Australia prior
to the Allied surrender of Singapore on 15/2/1942.
As the waters in South East
Asia became more dangerous, some of the last ships to leave
Singapore headed for
Ceylon. The men remained in hospital or convalescent depot in
Colombo until it was
safe to return to Australia.
