Default 2AIF in Malaya and Singapore

I came across this ABC documentary about the fighting in Malaya, and the fall of Singapore.

Includes some interviews with, then, surviving members of the 8th division. In particular with some infantrymen. Not something seen too often in the UK.

There is also mention of desertion and of the friction between the British and the Australians, all the way up to the top.
