On this day 68 years ago, 840 men of HMS Prince of Wales and HMS Repulse died when the ships were sunk in the defence of Singapore and our interests in the Far East. Overshadowed historically by Pearl Harbour just three days earlier, we should not forget the sacrifice these men made. It was a good week for the Japanese but a disaster for the allied forces. A service is being held today in 'The Sailors Church' in Liverpool opposite the Liver Building. Please spare one minute today to remember them if you can.
