A close up of the 1938 OS map of Singapore showing the area between Pierce and MacRitchie Reservoirs

Historic Context:

It was into this area that FewForce was asked to patrol on the 12th of February 1942. They moved from Thomson Village up to the Tiang Guan Estate before heading west towards the highest peaks of Bukit Kalong. They then moved on towards the pipeline and track running between the end of Pierce and MacRitchie reservoirs. They then dug in overlooking the track. Patrols were sent north towards the shores of Pierce and along the southern road bordering the golf course and towards Bukit Tingii. Both patrols ran into opposition but engaged without losing a man.
