AIF SWIMMING CARNIVAL CHANGI 1942

AIF SWIMMING COMPETITION & CARNIVAL SINGAPORE 1942

 

There were six teams from the various battalions competing in an AIF Swimming Carnival won by 2/4th MGB.  As was usual the bookies were out and about and the Aussies were betting heavily.
Apparently the Carnival included an international race in which the Dutch team defeated the Australians.
Our research has not previously come across any information anywhere about swimming competitions -this information is from ‘The Sportsmen of Changi’ by Kevin Blackburn.
