I have the following brief information which may help:

WILSON W.A.[William Arthur] To Singapore 1913. Journalist: Editor, Roda Ltd, 19 Raffles Chambers, Singapore then working for Department of Information in the Fullerton Building, Singapore. Aged 53 in 1942. Served in the ARP. Wife Winifred worked in Mental Section, Middleton Hospital,Singapore.Changi and Sime Rd internees. He was 30 + years as a journalist in Malaya before moving 1950 to Dalton-in-Furness, Lancashire where he was Editor of the Barrow News.

You may find a lot more about him by searching the online Straits Times archive.
