Sarimbun Battle Site - In 1942, the artillery barrages were intensified as the Japanese army prepared to land at Sarimbun. Protected by heavy artillery fire, Japanese soldiers from the 5th and 18th Division crossed the Johore Strait in a fleet of small boats and successfully landed at Sarimbun around midnight on 8 February 1942. In the battle that ensued at Sarimbun, the British were ill-equipped to deal with the assault force. The defended posts were widely separated and there were insufficient local reserves available for immediate counter-attack. The 22nd Australian Brigade entrusted with the defence of the front where the landing took place was given an impossible task. By 9 February, the Japanese had overrun this brigade and made their way to Tengah airfield. The invasion of Singapore exposed the weaknesses of the defending British forces and serves as a reminder that we must, ourselves, be responsible for Singapore's security and well-being.
