'THE GUNNERS 600' - RABAUL AND BALLALE (BALLALAE)
Including Rolls of Honour

On 18th October 1942 600 men of the Royal Artillery left Singapore for an unknown destination. They arrived in Rabaul New Britain on 5th November 1942, one man, (BSM T Lamborne of 11 Coast Regiment), having died during the voyage.

At the end of November 1942 517 of the men left Rabaul for Ballalae, one of the Solomon Islands, leaving behind 82 of their colleagues, most of whom were considered too sick to make the journey. Only 18 of those 82 survived to the end of the war.

Those taken to Ballalae were forced to assist in the construction of an air strip. None of these 517 men survived. The official date given for the Ballalae Massacre is 5th March 1943 but interviews with locals, Japanese, Koreans and Chinese suggest June 1943 would be nearer the truth.

Further information on the story of the 'Gunners 600' can be found on other pages of this web site.

Ballalae Island today - the air strip is still in use
