86 remember the Battle of Pasir Panjang at our annual walk and learn about the ridge

Sun 12 Feb 2017 – 86 participants and guides walked together bright and early from 7.00am to 12.00pm in remembrance at the annual Battle of Pasir Panjang Commemorative Walk.

This year marks the 75th anniversary of the Fall of Singapore and we were joined by members of the Malaysia’s Military History Lover’s Club as well as friends from Australia and Japan. We have been sharing news and stories with them over Facebook since the walk.

Several volunteer guides with other museums were with us too. The Pasir Panjang guides shared stories with participants about the history, biology and geography of the ridge (see the webpage) and heard stories ourselves from the many who came.

For photos from the event, see the Pasir Panjang Heritage Facebook page.
