ARTIKEL PILIHAN: ASP GURCHAN SINGH - THE LION OF MALAYA

The late of ASP Gurchan Singh who was in Special Branch and also known as 'lion of Malaya' had been wanted by the Japanese for quite some time for his anti-Japanese information and public relations campaign.

Together with his brothers Gurcharan and Gurdial, he had been printing leaflets containing news about the war from around the world based on the communique of Allied forces.

The leaflets were signed ‘Singa’ (lion) and dropped outside shops and houses, and pasted on trees, walls, electric lamp-posts, and notice boards.

They also carried out acts of sabotage against the Japanese during World War II, cutting telecommunication lines, blowing up railway wagons, and even killing Japanese soldiers with grenades.

For his heroics, ASP Gurchan received a certificate of commendation from the then British High Commissioner Edward Gent.
