changi internment camp trophy

This next trophy is a bit of a mystery. Handmade, presumably with what a prisoner at the camp was able to find about the place, it must have been expected to be in use for a fair while as there are five disca available for engraving the names of winning teams.

No one at the club is very sure how it found its way to Pittodrie from Singapore but we have to assume a Dons fan brought it back after being interned during WWII. On the back of the trophy is the inscription "Made by D. P.Taylor." Someone somewhere must have some knowledge of the history of this unique trophy and we at the club would be interested to hear from anyone that could shed some light on the subject.

If anyone can tell us more about this memento or even anything about the Changi Internment Camp as it relates to Aberdeen Football Club, then please contact AFC Heritage Trust c/o Pittodrie Stadium. There has to be a fascinating tale to tell on this particular memento from the 1940's.
