Historic Harbour in Singapore
Oct 2019
Wednesday 23rd October we were walking along the waterside at Maritime and we visited this historic Harbour.

It is also called the Keppel Channel, is a stretch of water in Singapore between the mainland and the southern islands of Pulau Brani  and  Sentosa. It is the only entry point to the city by sea.

A number of countries have contributed to the history of Keppel Harbour, including the Chinese, Indonesians, British and Japanese.

This Harbour is steeped in history it has been a thriving maratime Gateway since the 19th century.

It was originally called New Harbour, it was renamed Keppel Harbour in 1900 in honour of Admiral Henry Keppel, who served as Admiral of the Fleet.

During the Second World War the allied troops passed through the Harbour to strengthen Singapore and Malaya's defences. It was also an escape route for thousands of soldiers and civilians before Singapore fell on the 15th February 1942.

It was also here that the Allies carried out Operation Jaywick, successfully destroying 7 Japanese ships stationed here in September 1943.
