Bukit Brown Cemetery 7

Again the talc comes to the rescue in terms of making the inscriptions more legible, although it is all the same for me (I cannot read the script). We were informed by the group leader that there is a young ethnic Chinese woman buried here and the inscription is in both Chinese and Japanese.

Some WW2 intrigue here, Ayush?

Chinese and Japanese, most unusual
Ayush Basu: That is what I gathered from the guide, Chris.
That she had an alias is interesting Ayush

It certainly helps to make the letters stand out Ayush.
Ayush Basu: Yes, a simple but effective implement, Chad.
Impressive arrangement of gravestones...
Ayush Basu: Yes, Larry, fairly elaborate.
One can definitely see the similarity of these different graves, Ayush. Most educational.
Ayush Basu: Thank you, Ginnie, for observing the subtleties.

Ayush Basu: Yes, a simple but ingenious implement, Elaine.
No, it's all written in Chinese.
With English at the bottom.
Ayush Basu: Maybe I misunderstood the guide then, LC.
It also comes in English, it seems - the grave of one Dolly Tan.
Ayush Basu: Yes, it was and still is common for the ethnic Chinese to adopt an English name, Tom.
