A few days before the fall of Singapore to the Japanese, on the 12th February 1942, St Andrew's Cathedral was cleared of its seats and taken over by 2/9th and 2/10th Field Ambulances. The Cathedral buildings and grounds were used as a hospital, accommodating a constant intake of sick and wounded, both troops and civilians.
