Kranji War Memorial

From one of my earlier visits to the Kranji War Memorial. There are over 4000 graves, with close to a thousand unmarked ones. Some of the marked ones showed names of soldiers as young as 17. Additionally, names of 24,000 WWII servicemen are inscribed on twelve columns.

I never got up to Northern Singapore - this looks very impressive Ayush!
A fine picture Ayush. It is so sad to see the names and ages on the graves. We owe them so much.
Felt very happy that you have honored those soldiers.This shot is as a tribute to them. Here lot of life with bright green surroundings which made more contrast with war memorial. A sad fleeing.But flowers are paying their respect to these graves.Very meaningful shot.Your every pics is very different to each other but always touch my heart. Very impressive !
A very poignant memorial Ayush

Separate stones, even for unknown soldiers. Quite a place.
