FORT SILOSO:

Overview:
Fort Siloso was a coast artillery battery, one of twelve coast artillery batteries which made up 'Fortress Singapore' at the start of World War Two. Although there are visible remains of some other batteries to be found on Singapore, Fort Siloso is the sole restored battery.

Built by British colonials in the 1880s to protect the western entrance to the Singapore harbour, the fort now houses a large collection of WWII memorabilia with actual 17th century artillery, life-sized replicas and interactive exhibits. The guns were used to fire at Japanese troops in the western sector of the island during the invasion of Singapore on 8 February 1942. The fort also served as a concentration camp for Prisoners of War during the Japanese Occupation.
