Neach-ceasnachaidh: When did you get home from the war?

Dòmhnall: That's what I was going to say. I got back on compassionate grounds, you know? Mrs. Mitford, she was our representative here, was our Welfare Officer, you know, for the community, and my mother was on her death bed and Mrs. Mitford did her utmost to get me home, through the War Office. And after I came out of that convalescence we were sent to a place in India called Punah and we were - that - we were reorganised, and the battalion was reorganising, rebuilding it, and the next - our next step was the invasion of Singapore. That was to be our next move. But as it so happened the atom bomb came in and the invasion never come off. The regiment did go to Singapore but there was a lot of sabotage going on, you know, after the war had been more or less finished like, you know? The Japanese were still resisting in pockets, in Singapore. But anyway when I came home - going back to that - Mrs. Mitford, through the War Office, got me out on compassionate grounds and I was sent from the convalescence camp down to Bombay and I came home on the ship 'Strathnaven' and the sick and the wounded came back on the same ship, you know? And there was some pathetic cases; I remember one morning, coming through the Red Sea, and I was lying on the top deck and the sun was blazing hot down, and this fellow jumped over the top of me, right over the top of the side of the ship, right into the sea. He was, as I said already, 'Doolally', you know? This is where that expression came from. And these soldiers, these boys that were in that state of mind, they were taken into the washhouses before the rest of the troops were allowed into the washhouse, on the, on the ship, and that's how they were on the go and this fellow escaped from them and this is what he did.
