Sir William is sent to the Far East as a Lieutenant Commander. He joins Force W and is based in Cox’s Bazar in Assam just outside Burma, It’s not a happy time for him. There’s a lot of political wrangling and not a lot of niceness. He leads the final invasion into the shores of Singapore. Sir William goes onto serve with the Duke Of Edinburgh. Maybe next time we’ll record that too… Very, many thanks for your time Sir William. A fascinating interview.
