Postcard showing the entrance to the Kranji War Memorial

The Kranji War Memorial was erected in honour of the Allied soldiers who died during WWII. Marked graves of thousands of servicemen who sacrificed their lives during the Japanese Occupation stand on the lawns, while the names of those whose bodies were never found are inscribed on the walls of the Memorial. Designed by Colin St. Clair Oakes, the cemetery was built to symbolise military formations, representative of the army, the navy and the air-force services.
