Maxwell was aware that the 22nd Brigade was under increasing pressure, but was unable to contact Taylor and was wary of encirclement. In doing so, the high ground overlooking the causeway was given up, and the left flank of the 11th Indian Division exposed.
The opening at Kranji made it possible for Imperial Guards armoured units to land there unopposed,  after which they were able to begin ferrying across their artillery and armour. The Jurong Line eventually collapsed, though, after the 12th Indian Brigade was withdrawn by its commander, Brigadier Archie Paris, to the road junction near Bukit Panjang, after he lost contact with the 27th Brigade on his right; the commander of the 44th Indian Brigade, Ballantine, commanding the extreme left of the line, also misinterpreted the orders in the same manner that Taylor had and withdrew.
I think you ought to realise the way we view the situation in Singapore. It is doubtful whether the Japanese have as many in the whole Malay Peninsula In these circumstances the defenders must greatly outnumber Japanese forces who have crossed the straits, and in a well-contested battle they should destroy them.
There must at this stage be no thought of saving the troops or sparing the population. The battle must be fought to the bitter end at all costs. The 18th Division has a chance to make its name in history. Commanders and senior officers should die with their troops.
The honour of the British Empire and of the British Army is at stake. I rely on you to show no mercy to weakness in any form. With the Russians fighting as they are and the Americans so stubborn at Luzonthe whole reputation of our country and our race is involved.
It is expected that every unit will be brought into close contact with the enemy and fight it out. Upon learning of the Jurong Line's collapse, Wavell, in the early afternoon of 10 February, ordered Percival to Stone Out My Mind - Mob Under Da Influence - Mob Under Da Influence a counterattack to retake it.
Percival made plans of his Gabrielle - Dreams for the counterattack, detailing a three-phased operation that involved the majority of the 22nd Brigade, and he subsequently passed this on to Bennett, who began implementing the plan, but Inevitable - Zimowa - Cover The Fall to call 'X' Battalion back. There, they fell upon 'X' Battalion, which had camped in its assembly area while waiting to launch its own attack, and in the ensuing fight two thirds of the battalion was killed or wounded.
Later on 11 February, with Japanese supplies running low, Yamashita attempted to bluff Percival, calling on him to "give up this meaningless and desperate resistance". This was achieved by moving the defending forces from the beaches along the northern shore and from around Changi, with the British 18th Division being tasked to maintain control of the vital reservoirs and effecting a link up with Simmons' Southern Area Inevitable - Zimowa - Cover The Fall.
On 13 February, Japanese engineers re-established the road over the causeway, and more tanks were pushed across.

The Australians occupied a perimeter of their own to the north-west Inevitable - Zimowa - Cover The Fall Tanglin Barracks, in which they maintained an all round defensive posture as a precaution to Japanese penetration of the larger perimeter elsewhere.
They dug in and throughout the night fierce fighting raged on the northern front. The following day, the remaining Allied units fought on. Civilian casualties mounted as one million people  crowded into the 3-mile 4. Civilian authorities began to fear that the water supply would give out.
At this time, Percival was advised that large amounts of water were being lost due to damaged pipes and that the water supply was on the verge of collapse. On 14 Februarythe Japanese renewed their assault on the western part of the Southern Area's defences, around the same area that the 1st Malayan Brigade had fought desperately to hold the previous day.
A British lieutenant—acting as an envoy with a white flag—approached the Japanese forces but was killed with a bayonet. Doctors and nurses were also killed. Those who fell on the way were bayoneted. The men were forced into a series of small, badly ventilated rooms where they were held overnight without water. Some died during the night as a result of their treatment. One survivor, Private Arthur Haines from the Wiltshire Regimentwrote a four-page account of the massacre that was sold by his daughter by private auction in Nevertheless, the military supply situation was rapidly deteriorating.
The water system was badly damaged and continued supply was uncertain, rations were running low, petrol for military vehicles was all but exhausted, and there were few rounds left for the field artillery. The anti-aircraft guns were almost out of ammunition,  and were unable to disrupt Japanese air attacks, which were causing heavy casualties in the city centre.
Little work had been done to build air raid shelters, and Inevitable - Zimowa - Cover The Fall and desertion by Allied troops further added to the chaos in this area. He proposed two options: either launch an immediate counter-attack to regain the reservoirs and the military food depots in Inevitable - Zimowa - Cover The Fall Bukit Timah region, or surrender. Inevitable - Zimowa - Cover The Fall heated argument and recrimination, all present agreed that no counterattack was possible.
Percival opted for surrender. The Japanese were at the limit of their supply line, and their artillery had just a few hours of ammunition Lion - AfricanShowBoyz* - Spiritual Song. A deputation was selected to go to the Japanese headquarters.
It consisted of a senior staff officer, the colonial secretary and an interpreter. They set off in a motor car bearing a Union Jack and a white flag of truce toward the enemy lines to discuss a cessation of hostilities. Under the terms of the surrender, hostilities were to cease at that evening, all military forces in Singapore were to surrender unconditionally, all Allied forces would remain in position and disarm themselves within an hour, and the British were allowed to maintain a force of 1, armed men to prevent Amsterdam (February 5, 1970) - David Bowie - At The Beeb until relieved by the Japanese.
In addition, Yamashita also accepted full responsibility for the lives of the civilians in the city. In the days following the surrender, Bennett caused controversy when he decided to escape. After receiving news of the surrender, Bennett handed command of the 8th Division to the divisional artillery commander, Brigadier Cecil Callaghanand—along with some of his staff officers—commandeered a small boat.

In analysing the campaign, Clifford Kinvig, a senior lecturer at Royal Military Academy Inevitable - Zimowa - Cover The Fallpoints the finger of blame at the commander of the 27th Brigade, Brigadier Duncan Maxwell, for his defeatist attitude  and not properly defending the sector between the Causeway and the Kranji River. A classified wartime report by Wavell released in blamed the Australians for the loss of Singapore.

Throughout the entire day campaign in Malaya and Singapore, total Allied casualties amounted to 8, killed or wounded andcaptured, while Japanese losses during this period amounted to 9, battle casualties.
While impressed with Japan's quick succession of victories, Adolf Hitler reportedly had mixed views regarding Singapore's fall, seeing it as a setback for the "white race", but ultimately something that currently was in Germany's military interests.
Hitler reportedly forbade Foreign Minister Joachim von Ribbentrop from issuing a congratulatory communique. British Prime Minister Winston Churchill called the fall of Singapore to the Japanese "the worst disaster and largest capitulation in British history". The fall of Singapore on February 15 stupefied the Prime Minister. How camemen half of them of our own race to hold up their hands to inferior numbers of Japanese?
