The National Heritage Board of Singapore is proud to present the “Battle for Singapore” application for self-guided trails.
Embark on a journey to experience the Battle for Singapore during World War II, learn more about our local war heroes and relive the painful experience of the Prisoners of War (PoWs) and civilians alike during the Japanese Occupation.
Through the incorporation of GPS tracking technology, the “Battle for Singapore” application will offer four different trails and provide a companion guide to 32 different historical World War II sites in Singapore. As you progress through each hotspot, you will discover weapons used by the resistance fighters of Force 136 and get promoted in rank at the completion of each trail.
Kindly note that this application will require GPS tracking and internet connection for the downloading of content and the transmission of pictures. Please also note that continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life so remember to turn-off the Location Services function when you have completed each trail.
This app requires iOS 4.3.3+. Please upgrade to the latest iOS for best experience.
