Sime Road Machine-Gun Pillbox

This pillbox was possibly built either as part of the British preparation for a war in Singapore, or for the defence of Sime Road Camp during the Japanese Occupation. This defensive structure was located inland within Sime Road Camp, and positioned to protect it. The internment camp first housed military Prisoners-of-War and later, civilians, including high-ranking European civil servants and their families.
