Fort Pasir Panjang & the Labrador Battery.

Fort Pasir Panjang was one of the coastal artillery batteries that ringed the southern coast of Singapore from colonial days. Built in tandem with the forts at Pulau Blakang Mati (Sentosa) in 1878, Fort Pasir Panjang was located at Tanjong Belayar; more specifically on Labrador Hill.

Fort Pasir Panjang was decommissioned in 1912 but was revived as the Labrador Battery in 1939 due to fomenting crisis that would become World War II.
