Built in 1936, the Battlebox is a former WWII British underground command centre inside Fort Canning Hill.
It was part of the headquarters of Malaya Command, the army which defended Malaya and Singapore in WWII.
It was inside the Battlebox 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.
