Please note that the following tour is only available on Tuesdays.
Intricate strategies, subtle plots, great follies, explosive action - we take you through the intense fire of battle and the fog of war that led to Singapore’s fall in WWII. Called ‘Gibraltar of the East’… Singapore fell in 7 days. Is it really the story of ‘a navy that never was, of defenders in the dark and of guns pointed in the wrong direction’? Should Percival really bear the brunt of it all? Get to know them – the British, Australian, Indian and Malayan defenders and uncover the realities shrouded in seductive myths and deceptive propaganda.
