At the top of Kranji Hill is the Great Winged Memorial. Projecting through the roof is the Singapore Memorial. This reaches to a height of 80 feet and is surmounted by a Star. On the Memorial Panels are inscribed the names of over 24,000 men and women who have no known grave. These names include that of a man, named as a traitor, and who spied for the Japanese. The Cross of Sacrifice can be seen in front of the Memorial.
The casualties commemorated here died during the battle for Malaya and Singapore and Indonesia, or during captivity. Many of them during the building of the infamous Death Railway. Others died at sea while being transported elsewhere to work as slave labour for the Japanese. Airmen who died in the Far East war zone are also commemorated here.
