Reflections at Bukit Chandu celebrates the bravery of the Malay Regiment who tried to defend Singapore against the Japanese in the Battle of Pasir Panjang. Bukit Chandu was the site of one of the fiercest battles during the Defence of Singapore, where just 1,400 soldiers of the Malay Regiment made their stand against 13,000 Japanese soldiers.
The memorial is housed within a colonial bungalow, used by the British defence forces during the war to store military supplies. The exhibition uses various forms of multimedia to bring to life the story of the lead up to the British surrender on 15th February 1942, while the 'Windows of Memories' provides personal accounts from former soldiers, residents and children who survived the attack.
