Labrador Nature Reserve
7th Coast Battery

The British made the southern beach an “impenetrable fortress”, making it extremenly difficult for enemy ships and troops to enter Singapore via that area. It would have proven very useful in combating the enemies.

Alas, the site did not see much action during the war. When the Japanese arrived in Singapore, they, together with their equipment, came from the Northern coast, instead of the Southern coast which the British expected. No Japanese ships passed through the area at all. As a result, much of the equipment at the fort was put to waste.
