Postscript - The 1st Independent Infantry Company
The 1st Independent Infantry Company was formally disbanded on the 14th of February and the following was written by Major Fearon in his diary.
They (No.1 Independent Company) did their duty. They fought the enemy where they found him. They saw as much of the fighting as any other unit in the Campaign, and a good deal more than most. They fought from the beginning on the Siamese border till the end at Singapore. Out of their small strength they lost some 70 casualities, killed, wounded, missing and sick. They inflicted at least three times these casualties on the enemy in killed and wounded alone.
They did well.
Let their exertions be remembered.59
