Description The Changi Murals de Peter W. Stubbs:

When Bombardier Stanley Warren first painted the Changi Murals in Luke's Chapel, Roberts Barracks, Singapore in 1942, his fellow prisoners knew so little about him that they made up their own 'myths' about the mysterious painter. This carefully researched account reveals the truth behind the man and his murals. It follows Stanley Warren's journey through World War II: from soldier, to prisoner of war, and his return to civillian life. It also tells of his remarkable, long-standing relationship with the murals - from when he was seriously ill as he began to paint the first of the five murals to how he was identified in 1959 as the lost artist of Changi, and how he returned twice to Singapore to restore the paintings. With over 70 illustrations, including full colour reproductions of the Changi Murals, archival photographs, sketches and maps. Peter W Stubbs was born in 1944 of British parents in Nagpur, India. He served with Air Dispatch Units of the British Army and met his Singaporean wife while serving in Singapore from 1965 to 1968. He developed and maintains a web portal on military history (www.petrowilliamus.co.uk), covering the Kranji Cemeteries, Fort Siloso, The Beverley Association, Point Grey Battery, Air Dispatch Association, and the Changi Murals.
