Even before he became a prisoner-of-war of the Japanese in Singapore in 1942, George Aspinall was nicknamed 'Changi' Aspinall by his 2/30th Battalion mates. At lights-out time in Birdwood Camp, George was invariably 'down at Changi Village' helping to process photographs he and his friends had taken of their new and exotic tropical surroundings. After captivity that hobby became a private obsession that saw George not only taking secret photographs in the Changi area, but up on the appalling Thai/Burma Railway. He not only took photographs at great personal risk, but actually processed them on the spot, using chemicals smuggled in medicine bottles from Singapore. The engenuity and resourcefulness of this teenage Australian private soldier have resulted in a unique visual diary of captivity.
