Battle Box

Battle Box, Singapore

Tucked into the hillside of Fort Canning is The Battle Box, the largest underground command centre of the British Malaya Command Headquarters during World War II.

Comprising 22 rooms linked by a corridor, this complex is bomb-proof and was also capable of recycling its own air supply. The Battle Box has undergone extensive restoration and through the use of special audio-visual effects, and high-quality animatronics, visitors are able to relive the morning of 15 February 1942 when Singapore fell to the Japanese.
