The female survivors are marched to the Kampong Getah prison camp where nurses Kate and Nellie meet up with Dr. Mason, who takes charge of cleaning out their squalid hut. Sharing it with them are Sylvia Ashburton, a snobbish, imperious general's wife known to Marion, brassy Cockney Blanche Simmons who helps the withdrawn Dorothy Bennett with her baby, pregnant Sally Markham and weepy Judith Bowen and her daughter Debbie. The commandant Captain Yamauchi tells the women that disobedience will be punished and Marion, nominated by the others, has to intercede with him when his sadistic lieutenant Sato - Satan to the women - catches Sylvia trying to use a radio. As Sylvia is released from the punishment hut Dutch captives, including Sister Ulrica, arrive. Written by don @ minifie-1
