The Pasir Panjang Pillbox

RongC passes by the Pasir Panjang pillbox often and wonders what it was like to have been there during the Battle of Pasir Panjang:

This particular WWII monument certainly had seen its fair share of action; I can picture the scenes some 60+ years ago, with enemy forces creeping around the area and fighters from the Malay Regiment inside the pillbox manning the machine guns and gunning down whoever had approached it on one hand, and worrying that they might be surprised by the sheer numbers of the enemy force on the other hand.
