I feel that Lim Bo Seng is truly a national hero of Singapore. He contributed and sacrificed himself for Singapore during World War II.
As a World War II anti-Japanese resistance fighter, he led anti-Japanese activities like protests and boycott of Japanese goods to oppose against the Japanese. He was very brave and participated actively in the campaigns. He treated Singapore as his homeland and defended Singapore. He was not afraid of death or even leaving his beloved wife and 7 children. He was out there to defend Singapore!
I am very impressed by his perseverance of not letting the secrets of Force 136 during the interrogation by Japanese despite them severely torturing him. Lim Bo Seng died in Batu Gajah Jail under Japanese torture and because of severe malnutrition (dysentery), but he remained silent about Force 136. He did not surrender to the Japanese until the last day of him. I feel very proud of him.
Other Singaporeans like you and I, we are very grateful towards Mr Lim Bo Seng. All of us felt that he contributed a lot to Singapore and what she became today- prosperous and safe from war. Because of his great contribution to our people, a funeral service was held on 13 January 1946 at City Hall to mourn his death. His remains were transported in a coffin to a hill in MacRitchie Reservoir for burial with full military honours. He was posthumously awarded the rank of Major-General by the Chinese Nationalist Government. That was a great achievement to Mr Lim Bo Seng, as we, Singaporeans give him our due respect and we recognised what he, our national hero had done for us!
Singapore, being a safe country now, is free from war or threatens from other countries. We were down during the Word War II. We would not have survived till today if it wasn’t for all the contributions that our heroes have done for us.
