GEMS Parent Event – The Battlebox (A Story of Strategy & Surrender)™


The Battlebox is a former WWII British underground command centre inside Fort Canning Hill in the heart of Singapore City.

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 decided 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”.

Our Battlebox Tour, A STORY OF STRATEGY & SURRENDER™, tells two stories – the fall of Malaya and Singapore in WWII, and how an underground command centre functioned during the war.
