War & Remembrance: A Trail on the Western Front™

Description of Programme

The defending Australian soldiers – as part of the multinational Allied army – were hugely outnumbered and more of them died in the fighting here than anywhere else in Malaya and Singapore during the war.

Understand the importance of promoting a Culture of Remembrance in Singapore and recognise the soldiers and airmen who contributed to the war effort. Programme includes a Reflection Session at Kranji War Cemetery. Sites Covered a. Sarimbun Beach Heritage Marker b. Sky Greens (Drive-past) c. Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve (entry subject to availability) d. Kranji Reservoir Park – War Memorial Marker e. Kranji War Cemetery (entry subject to availability)
