Event description

Description

Do you know if the 6-inch QF gun pounders at Labrador were used to fire at the Japanese troops during World War II?

My Labrador Heritage Tour visits the military installations constructed by the British troops to defend the naval outpost at Keppel Harbour and follows the chronology of war taking place at Fort Pasir Panjang/Labrador Battery.

Participants will come up-close with the former military encampments and fortifications at Fort Pasir Panjang and explore the stunning natural heritage at Berlayer Creek.
