5829642 Private Victor James Devonshire of the 4th Battalion, Suffolk Regiment, died at sea on the 16th September 1944. He was presumably also buried at sea and is commemorated on the Singapore Memorial. He was 25 years old, the son of James and Ada Devonshire of Upper Holloway, London.

At the going down of the sun, and in the morning, WE WILL REMEMBER THEM.
