Lets start

Explore The Battlebox, a former WWII British underground command center in Singapore. Built-in the late 1930s, The Battlebox is a former WWII British underground command center inside Fort Canning Hill at the heart of Singapore City. The British army defended Malaya and Singapore from this legendary hideout in World War II. It was also here that the British made the decision to surrender Singapore to the invading Japanese on 15 February 1942. Today, the Battlebox is a museum that unveils the true causes behind “the worst disaster and largest capitulation in British history”. This tour tells two stories – the fall of Malaya and Singapore in WWII, and how an underground command center functioned during World War II.
