Garden of Wartime Staples

Today, we have ready access to a myriad of food choices. But without the lessons learned and the spirit of survival from the war, we would not be as well-off as we are today. Learn about how people ate during the war due to scarcity of staples such as rice, oil, sugar, salt. Learn about different spices and hersbs and how these were used to flavour the staple tapioca and sweet potato dishes.

 

Life of A Soldier

Fort Siloso was manned by soldiers from the British Royal Artillery and the Singapore Artillery Corps. Some of the amenities for soldiers to live and work at the fort were barracks, mess, bungalows and underground complex.

 

Surrender Chamber
