HISSOC, in collaboration with the National Heritage Board, conducted guided tours for the public at Kent Ridge Park, in the Pasir Panjang Trail as part of the Battle for Singapore initiative. The tours fell on three dates: 18 February, 25 February and 4 March.
While traversing the park, tour participants were told about the reasons for the Japanese invasion, the order of battle in Malaya and Singapore, the Battle for Pasir Panjang itself, the aftermath of the battle and this ended at Reflections at Bukit Chandu where a member of the SAF Veterans’ League brought them on a tour of the Interpretative Centre.
We hope all participants have enjoyed their tour and learnt more about the defence of Singapore as well as the bravery of the Malay Regiment. A big Thank You to all docents who volunteered their weekends to rehearse and conduct the tours; we couldn’t have done this without you! We hope to see you again as docents next year! :D
Here are some pictures of our docents in action:
Once again, HISSOC would like to thank the organising committee and docents for helping make this event(s) a success!
