Geraldene Lowe's WW2 battlefield tour Feb 21 2016

Description
Learn about the Japanese invasion of Singapore, the 3 and a half years that Singapore was Syonan-To, and the reality and repercussions of that occupation.

Visit WW2 sites including the Kranji War Memorial, the Landing Beaches & Battlefield Sites on Singapore's North coast, and an amazing little treasure of a museum in Pasir Panjang, which commemorates the heroic last stand by the Malay Regiment in the last battle for Singapore.

The route we will take from Kranji to Pasir Panjang will be that taken by the Japanese troops as they overran the island. We will also pass by a number of other significant places such as the Last Defence Pillbox and the old Ford Factory, the site of the surrender of the Allies to the Japanese.

Hear Geraldene's personal recollections of the war years and their impact on her family.

PLEASE NOTE THE END TIME FOR THIS TOUR IS 1PM, NOT 11:40AM; ALSO WE SOMETIMES RUN A FEW MINUTES LATE ALTHO WE TRY NOT TO!
