The Battle of Pasir Panjang Commemorative Walk
with the NUS Toddycats, volunteers of the Lee Kong Chian Natural History Museum, National University of Singapore.
Sun 16 Feb 2020: 7.00am – 12.00pm from NUS
The heroic account of the Malay Regiment at the Battle of Pasir Panjang left a strong impression on us, and there few of us have come together to commemorate the Malay Regiment’s defense of the ridge every year since 2002.
Guides will share with the public stories about the battle, the geography, history and the flora and fauna of the area which drew us to explore the ridge decades ago which led us to gradually learn of its history.
Our commemorative route takes us from the battle front at the National University of Singapore to Kent Ridge Road and through the Gap to Kent Ridge Park and ends at Reflections of Bukit Chandu (note that this is closed in 2020).
All are welcome, just register at Eventbrite.
You must be able to wake up and join us at 7.00am at NUS’ University Cultural Centre and be physically fit enough to walk 5km (with some stairs) at a moderate pace over five hours.
Please read the other details and guidelines for preparation on the Eventbrite page.
