Local Tour: Battlefield

Date Thursday, November 11
Time 9.00am to 1.00pm (approximately)
Venue Newton Food Centre Car Park
$59.00 Member  $73.00 Guest

On 15th February 1942, the British surrendered to the Japanese and for the next 3-1/2 years, Singaporeans suffered greatly under the brutal occupation. Reserving their vengeance especially for the Chinese, thousands of Chinese men were rounded up and executed.  Singapore was the British’s ‘impregnable’ fortress but it fell in 7 days.

Come on the tour to learn about why the Japanese decided to invade South East Asia, their successful battlefield strategies in contrast to the bungling defence of the Allied troops. 

 Our first stop will be the Kranji War Memorial, where over 30,000 military personnel are honoured. As we walk around the tranquil surroundings, hear stories about some of the heroes of the war.

Next we move on to visit the Former Ford factory, and see the actual room where the British surrender was signed. Our final stop will be Labrador Park, the southern part of the island where the British built most their fortifications, in anticipation of an attack from the sea. We can still see remnants of a fort and pill boxes erected by the British.  The coach will bring you back to Newton Food Centre where the tour ends.

All participants must have Tracetogether app or token ready and adhere strictly to the social distancing guidelines given by the tour guide at all times.

 This tour is non-refundable.
