Singaporetourismmap: Cherry Point Roaming - Kranji Mrt - Kranji Nation Of War Cemetery

Having caught upwardly alongside the novel stations on the 2d business office of the Downtown trouble I'm dorsum to 'k' inwards my Red Dot Roaming serial alongside a trip to Kranji MRT to view the Kranji War Cemetery together with Memorial.

The cemetery is the in conclusion resting house of the Allied soldiers who died during the Battle of Singapore together with the subsequent Japanese Occupation every bit good every bit those who died inwards other parts of South Eastern Asia during World War II. Before the nation of war the Kranji expanse was a military machine campsite when Singapore roughshod the Japanese turned it into a prisoner-of-war camp. When the nation of war ended it was decided that this spot would move designated every bit Singapore's nation of war cemetery together with the pocket-size cemetery already there, which had been started yesteryear the prisoners-of-war, was farther developed. In fourth dimension other nation of war graves from Buona Vista, Changi together with other places inwards Singapore were removed together with re-interred at Kranji. In improver in that location are likewise a reveal of memorials at the cemetery alongside the largest beingness the Kranji War Memorial alongside the names of all those from the Air Force, Army together with Navy who died but for whom no remains could move identified.

The cemetery is but a curt walk from the MRT station alongside the approach beingness upwardly a tranquillity route which reminded me a footling of an English linguistic communication dry reason lane alongside the high leafy hedges. I've been to a few similar nation of war cemeteries inwards northern French Republic together with Kingdom of Belgium together with all of them get got an air of peacefulness together with calm to them, Kranji was no exception to this. There were entirely a yoke of other people in that location together with although the persuasion from the occur of the cemetery showed the typical persuasion of developed Singapore together with nosotros were entirely a curt walk from a major road, in that location was cypher actually to listen hither asides from plane vocal on the breeze.

The sight of row upon row of white nation of war graves is ever a footling pump wrenching, seeing the ages of those who gave their lives is likewise difficult. It is though, I think, of import to view such places together with to accept fourth dimension to recall those who gave upwardly together with thus much for their generation together with hereafter ones. We in all probability spent but about one-half an hr or together with thus in that location looking at the memorials together with but some of the many names from diverse countries together with their regiments, reflecting quietly on that menses of history.

The Kranji War Cemetery is maintained yesteryear the Commonwealth War Graves Commission (CWGC), if you lot would similar farther data their website is,
